BioToolKit now provides 750 annotated links to Web tools for the study of nucleic acid, genome, and protein structure.
Sequin, the sequence-submission and editing tool, for all platforms. This version is expected to be particularly useful for genome centers that annotate large records.
version finds pattern repeats ranging from 1 to 500 bases.
Users submitting a sequence (up to 2 Mb) in FASTA format will receive a summary table of repeats, including their location, size, number of copies, and nucleotide content. Clicking on an entry shows alignment against a consensus pattern, allowing the user to see the repeat pattern and mutation location.

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.
