Bacterial Protein Sequence Database
The Homologous Bacterial Genes Database (HOBACGEN) contains all the protein sequences of bacteria organized into families (http://pbil.univ-lyon1.fr/databases/hobacgen.html). Users can select sets of homologous genes from bacterial species and visualize multiple alignments and phylogenetic trees. These capabilities make HOBACGEN useful for comparative genomics, phylogeny, and molecular evolution studies on bacteria.

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.
