Data from a paper on the radiation hybrid (RH) map of human chromosome 11 that appeared in Nature Genetics [8, 70-76 (September 1994)] is accessible via anonymous ftp (ftp.well.ox.ac.uk in the directory pub/genetic/rh11map). The data, contributed by a group led by Michael James (The Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, U.K.) includes a file of over 600 sequence tagged sites with their primer sequences and the RH map. These files will be updated regularly as new sequence tagged sites are placed on the RH map. [Contact: Michael James (Fax: +44-865/742-196 or -187, Internet: firstname.lastname@example.org).]

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.
