GDB, OMIM Training Schedule
Comprehensive hands-on training courses on the use of GDB and OMIM will have at least one computer work-station for two participants. Registrants will receive at least 3 weeks notice if insufficient registration causes class cancellation.
The general course for scientific users provides a basic understanding of the databases and relationships among different types of data.
Courses are free, but attendees must pay their own travel and lodging expenses. Hotel information and directions will be mailed with registration materials.
As interest in GDB continues to grow, organizations around the world will offer training that requires access to GDB in Baltimore. Notifying GDB User Support about planned training activities will enable the staff to ensure database availability by scheduling maintenance and repairs at other times.

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.
