GDB, OMIM Training Schedule

"GDB/OMIM and Genomic Data on the Internet" classes will be held in Baltimore on Sept. 19-20 and Nov. 14-15. This course offers thorough coverage of the structure, content, and roles of GDB and OMIM; discusses the strengths and weaknesses of various interfaces for searching the data; and explores related genomic resources available worldwide on the Internet. In addition to using GDB and OMIM application software, participants will learn how to retrieve phenotype, mapping, and sequence data with tools such as ftp, e-mail, Gopher, and the WWW hypertext browser NCSA Mosaic. Contact the U.S. GDB User Support Office.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

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.

Human Genome News

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
