Launchpad to Human Chromosomes

A new Web site, designed by HGMIS as a launchpad to information about all the human chromosomes, is online. 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 (martinsa@ornl.gov).

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.
