PDB Newsletter

Initiated in January of this year, PDB Newsletter is published quarterly by the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB), which operates the Protein Data Bank (http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/). The newsletter, available on the Web, highlights the RCSB system and its features as well as future plans, collaborations, and projects.

Human Polymorphism Database

HGBASE is a public database of human intragenic polymorphisms. It is designed to contain all types of sequence variations, especially SNPs, found in normal individuals (http://hgbase.interactiva.de [url no longer acrive]). Because many of these polymorphisms are likely to influence phenotypes, HGBASE is expected to be useful in the design of association studies and similar analyses.

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.
