Human Genome News Archive Edition
Human Genome News, September 1994; 6(3):11
Two graphical interfaces to GDB are available on WWW. The original version, developed as part of the Genome Machine project by David Adler and other investigators at the University of Washington, can be used with any graphical WWW client and supports searches for genes at a specified cytogenetic location (URL http://www.pathology.washington.edu/ under cytogenetics/genome).
The enhanced version, developed by GDB staff, provides buttons to modify the query for greater searching flexibility. This interface requires a WWW client such as XMosaic that supports image mapping within HTML forms (URL http://www.gdb.org/ under Ideogram-based Searching).
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.
