Genome Data Base and the Genome Sequence Data Base (GSDB), hosted at the National Center for Genome Resources in Santa Fe, New Mexico, have developed improved WWW connections between human gene mapping and sequence data. Detailed information about loci and probes retrieved from Genome Data Base's WWW server now includes links to GSDB DNA sequence entries (URL: http://www.gdb.org).
Selecting the DNA sequence accession number or numbers associated with a Genome Data Base locus or probe retrieves a tabular summary of all related GSDB sequences. The summary shows the entry name, length, accession number, and a brief sequence description. Summary lines are linked to detailed GSDB flatfile sequence entries, which in turn are linked to Genome Data Base through gene symbol and map location. For example, following the GSDB map location link retrieves all Genome Data Base loci mapped to the same cytogenetic region as the sequenced locus. Not all Genome Data Base loci and probes have related GSDB sequences, and not all GSDB entries have map locations.

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.
