Your World Computers and Biotechnology Issue
The Computers and Biotechnology issue of Your World: Biotechnology and You [9(1), Fall 1999] includes molecular puzzles and stories on gene hunting, SNPs and chips, viewing molecules and proteins, and searching for drugs.
Written in simple language geared toward 7th to 12th graders, Your World is published by the Biotechnology Institute, which is supported by ten leading biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. Price, subscription, and ordering information and a sample teachers guide in PDF and HTML formats are on the Web; back issues and Biotechnology and AIDS, published this year, also are available (814/238-4083, Fax: 814/238-4081).
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.
