The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, has announced that the Mouse Genome Database (MGD) superseded the Genomic Database of the Mouse (GBASE) on January 31. MGD will accommodate rapid data growth and changing information needs, taking advantage of software and network improvements. MGD includes all former GBASE data and is integrated with the Encyclopedia of the Mouse Genome, an application that generates a graphical display of mouse genetic linkage maps using MGD mouse locus and homology information.

Release #9 of the Whitehead Institute-Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) mouse genetic maps is available through MGD and the mouse encyclopedia. Data have been incorporated into locus information tables, PCR primer RFLP tables, and a new set of MIT data files for the encyclopedia. Files may be downloaded from the encyclopedia Home Page (no longer available, see http://www.jax.org/).

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.
