The Genome Report Card, a summary prepared by the National Center for Human Genome Research (NCHGR), presents an overview of progress made toward the 5-year chromosome mapping and DNA sequencing goals of the U.S. Human Genome Project. The report card is based on data from the GDB Human Genome Data Base, GenBank®, and primary publications. Additionally, genetic linkage map information is derived from the Human Genome Mapping Workshop 10 (HGM 10), the Centre d'Etude du Polymorphisme Humain (CEPH), and the NCHGR Index Map project.
The following information is reported for each human chromosome:
The March 1992 edition of the Genome Report Card constitutes the information baseline with which future data can be compared to assess progress.

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.
