Availability of BAC Clones and STC Data

Major sequencing centers may request BAC libraries directly from CalTech and Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Facilities requiring fewer BACs can obtain them through commercial suppliers after identifying needed BACs by searching the STC database against their own seed sequences. In the United States, Genome Systems Inc. and Research Genetics distribute clonal resources and provide screening services. In Europe, similar services are provided by the Sanger and German resource centers.

STC data sets are available at the NCBI database dbGSS, with more detailed information and protocols on the TIGR and UWMB Web sites. Visit Web sites for these and other resources.

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.
