Human Genome News Archive Edition
Human Genome News, July 1994; 6(2)
Documentation describing the proposed GDB 5-year work plan is available via World Wide Web (WWW), including discussions of GDB and its roles in the federation of genomic databases and in the revised NIH-DOE 5-year plan. Additional documents describing GDB's proposed design for Version 6 will also be available soon to enable the user community to provide feedback during the design phase.
This documentation can be accessed directly from the GDB Home Page via WWW (URL http://www.gdb.org ) or through a GDB/OMIM login account at Johns Hopkins University (select Local Databases at the Main Menu and then Internet WWW Access ).
2013 post-production note: GDB (Wikipedia) is no longer operational. See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/projects/genome/guide/human/index.shtml

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
