The latest issue of embnet.news, the newsletter of EMBnet, is available in html format on the Web and in printable Postscript and Adobe Acrobat formats via ftp. The newsletter contains information, articles, reviews, comments, and announcements of interest to the European and global bioinformatics communities.
The European Union's Biotechnology Program and funded projects are here. Areas of research include cell factories, genome analysis, plant and animal biotechnology, cell communication, immunology, and structural biology.
The electronic form of the newsletter may be cited in the following style:
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.
