Who's Sequencing the Human Genome?
Listed below are the major large-scale sequencing facilities in the U.S. Human Genome Project* as of February 1999. Washington University and the DOE Joint Genome Institute led in total human DNA sequence contributed to public databases in 1998. To access the Web sites of the centers listed below, see this webpage.
*In addition to sequencers in the U.S. project, centers in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan are making major contributions toward sequencing the human genome. See URL above.
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.
