To become a registered user of GDB and OMIM, contact one of the User Support offices listed below (a user may register to access both Baltimore and a remote node). Questions, problems, or user-registration requests may be sent by telephone, fax, or e-mail. User-registration requests should include name, institutional affiliation, and title (if applicable), street address (no P.O. box numbers), telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address.
The Help Line in Baltimore is staffed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST for information on accounts and training courses, technical support, and data questions. Calls received after hours will be forwarded to the appropriate voice mail and returned as soon as possible.
GDB, OMIM Training Schedule
A "GDB/OMIM and Genomic Data on the Internet" class will be held in Baltimore on March 20-21, 1995, and June 5-6, 1995. These courses offer thorough coverage of the structure, content, and roles of GDB and OMIM; discuss the strengths and weaknesses of various interfaces for searching the data; and explore related genomic resources available worldwide on the Internet. In addition to using GDB and OMIM application software, participants will learn how to retrieve phenotype, mapping, and sequence data with tools such as ftp, e-mail, Gopher, and the WWW hypertext browser NCSA Mosaic. Contact the U.S. GDB User Support Office.

Human Genome Program, U.S. Department of Energy, Human Genome News (v6n5).
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.
