Researchers wishing to submit their data to GDB and receive a D-number assignment for a new segment of anonymous DNA must include the following minimal information on a GDB Submission form:
D-segment numbers will be assigned according to the guidelines established in the "Report of the DNA Committee of Human Gene Mapping Workshop 11," (Cytogenet. and Cell Genet., 1991, in press). A copy of the guidelines is available upon request from Michael Chipperfield at the address below.
If a D-segment is polymorphic, a GDB Polymorphism Submission form should be completed, as well as a GDB PCR Submission form if the polymorphism is formatted by polymerase chain reaction. These forms may also be used when submission to GDB is required for journal publication.
All GDB data submission forms are available in both hard-copy and electronic form. Direct inquiries to

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.
