GDB BIOSCI Newsgroup*

A recently established BIOSCI newsgroup dedicated to GDB will allow rapid dissemination of information and provide a forum for GDB users to communicate among themselves. The newsgroup will be monitored regularly by GDB staff but will not replace the support lines for direct user aid. It is listed as GDB (bionet.molbio.gdb) in the USENET newsgroup hierarchy.

The BIOSCI newsgroup network was developed to facilitate worldwide communication among biological scientists working on a variety of computer networks. Distribution sites or nodes on each major network allow users to communicate without learning a variety of computer-addressing protocols. Messages posted to the regional BIOSCI node are distributed automatically to subscribers on all participating networks, including Internet, USENET, BITNET, EARN, NETWORTH, HEANET, and JANET.

USENET News users do not need an e-mail subscription to BIOSCI. Subscription requests, cancellations, and questions about using BIOSCI should be sent to the Internet address: biosci@genbank.bio.net.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

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.
