E. Coli Map Data Requested

Barbara Bachmann (Department of Biology, Yale University) is revising the 1990 Escherichia coli linkage map, edition 8 [Microbiol. Rev. 54: 130-197 (1990)]. So that the map can be revised in the shortest possible time, she asks that authors of papers containing any mapping data send her reprints from all journals other than the Journal of Bacteriology to the following address:

  • Barbara J. Bachmann
    Department of Biology, OML 355
    Yale University
    P.O. Box 6666
    New Haven, CT 06511-7444

Reprints of Bachmann's article and wall charts of the 1990 E. coli linkage map are available from the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) for $10.50 (United States and Canada) and $12.50 (foreign). Charge card orders: (202) 737-3600. Fax: (202) 737-0368. Mail orders: ASM Publication Sales; 1325 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W.; Washington, DC 20005-4171.

The Journal of Bacteriology plans to publish quarterly the physical locations of genes and loci assigned to the E. coli chromosome and is calling for related manuscripts. For information on submissions, see the January issue of ASM News, pp. 6-7.

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.

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