The Gene Family Database is a prototype database for integrating biological data generated by the Human Genome Project. Currently, it is a WWW interface that includes descriptive text contributed by research collaborators as well as hypertext links to various biological databases. Entries include gene family definitions, member descriptions, and information on gene structure and sequence, RNA transcripts and protein products, gene expression and function, model organisms, and human genetic disease. Linked databases include GDB, GSDB, SWISS-PROT, PROSITE, BLOCKS, PRODOM, MGD, TBASE, FlyBase, OMIM, and Medline Entrez. [comments and suggestions, Amy Voltz (email@example.com).

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.
