Human Genome News Archive Edition
The CEPH database of genotypes for all genetic markers tested in the reference families [Genomics 6, 575-77 (1990)] can be downloaded for PC and UNIX via ftp (ftp ftp.cephb.fr) from the directory pub/ceph_genotype_db). V7.1 includes genotypes for some 6000 genetic markers (over 2500 of which are microsatellite markers), pairwise LOD scores between marker loci on the same chromosome, and database-management programs. The server also contains databases for published CEPH consortium maps.

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.
