Collection Typifies Ethnic Populations
The Human DNA Repository at the National Laboratory for the Genetics of Israeli Populations at Tel-Aviv University has a large DNA collection from healthy unrelated individuals and small families. The collection represents Israel's Jewish and Arab populations. Of more than 1400 cell lines established, over 3000 DNA samples have been distributed to researchers in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan.

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.
