The Human Genome Organization (HUGO) Mouse Genome Committee is compiling mouse mapping resource and project information not generally available from regular sources. HUGO plans to sponsor a database of such material and will disseminate hard copies to HUGO members and other interested people. This database is seen as an important opportunity to highlight the usefulness of mouse resources to both the mouse and human communities and to foster many new contacts between the two groups.
To gather information for the database, the HUGO Mouse Genome Committee is circulating a questionnaire to mouse genetics laboratories and investigators. The form, only one of which is needed from each laboratory or center, asks for areas of expertise, genetic mapping facilities, clone library facilities, and somatic cell and irradiation hybrids. To obtain a questionnaire, contact Steve Brown; Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics; St. Mary's Hospital Medical School; Norfolk Place, London W2 1PG; (Int.) 44-71/723-1252, ext. 5484; Fax: (Int.) 44-71/706-3272.
Beginning October 12, the address for HUGO Europe will be 1 Park Square West London NW1 4LJ, U.K. Telephone and fax numbers [(Int.) 44/71-436-7178 and -1988] are expected to remain the same.

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.
