A comprehensive introduction to the field of human biology covers all the major areas of the field: genetic variation, variation related to climate, infectious and non-infectious diseases, aging, growth, nutrition, and demography.
Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM®) is a continuously updated catalog of human genes and genetic disorders and traits, with particular focus on the molecular relationship between genetic variation and phenotypic expression. It is thus considered to be a phenotypic companion to the Human Genome Project. OMIM is a continuation of Dr. Victor A. McKusick's Mendelian Inheritance in Man, which was published through 12 editions, the last in 1998. OMIM is currently biocurated at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
The 5,000 entries cover evidence and methods used to investigate the relationships among the living great apes, evidence about what makes the behavior of modern humans distinctive, and evidence about the evolutionary history of that distinctiveness, as well as information about modern methods used to trace the recent evolutionary history of modern human populations.
In addition to the large multi-disciplinary and smaller, Anthropology-specific pages recommented on the Home tab of this guide, the following databases will have some coverage of Physical Anthropology, Human Evolution, Genetics, etc.
