Home Pages Describe Genome Programs

Three new WWW home pages offer information about genome programs:

  • DOE Office of Health and Environmental Research (OHER) Home Page for the DOE Human Genome Program ( includes pointers to other programs within OHER ( and the Office of Energy Research ( Links are made to additional biological and environmental information and to the Human Genome Management Information System (HGMIS), Genome Data Base, and other sites.
  • Home Page at Oak Ridge National Laboratory ( Includes text on the DOE Human Genome Program; funding and fellowships; and selected genome resources. The 1993 DOE Human Genome Program Report, two latest issues of HGN, calendars of genome meetings and training events, and a list of chromosome editors are also accessible.
  • Genome Data Base Home Page extension, Human Genome Project Resources and Meetings (, includes links to human genome centers, human chromosome-specific servers, model organism genome projects, and Genome Data Base and OMIM related pages. The page can also be accessed through the URL of the Genome Data Base Home Page (
  • 2013 post-production note: GDB (Wikipedia) is no longer operational. See



These WWW sites point to each other and are coordinating their efforts with other WWW sites to provide Internet access to genome information.

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.

Human Genome News

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
