Launchpad to Human Chromosomes
A new Web site, designed by HGMIS as a launchpad to information about all the human chromosomes, is online [https://public.ornl.gov/hgmis/launchpad/]. The page for each chromosome contains links to gene maps, sequences, associated genetic disorders, nonhuman genetic models, identified genes, and research efforts and laboratories. Suggestions for additions and corrections are welcome (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The electronic form of the newsletter may be cited in the following style:
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.
