Handbook of Human Genetic Linkage

Handbook of Human Genetic Linkage, by Joseph Terwilliger (University of Oxford) and Jurg Ott (Columbia University), contains detailed instructions for carrying out linkage analysis, guiding the reader step by step through each process. Chapters are grouped into three main sections: two-point linkage analysis; multipoint linkage analysis; and such advanced topics as mutation rates, gene frequencies, linkage disequilibrium, complex diseases, and computer simulation. Each chapter ends with exercises that can be performed on an IBM PC-compatible computer, and solutions are supplied at the end of each section.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

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.
