Chromosome 22 Newsgroup Established

An electronic bulletin board has been established as part of the international BIOSCI network to allow more frequent contact among persons interested in chromosome 22 mapping and sequencing, specific genes, chromosomal abnormalities, and related disease phenotypes. It will also serve as a forum to distribute information concerning new clones, references, cell lines, genes, polymorphisms, and scientific meetings. [See HGN 2(1): 10 (May 1990) for information on the BIOSCI Human Genome newsgroup.]

The Chromosome 22 Newsgroup can be received worldwide via USENET as bionet.genome.chrom22, with USENET software running. To obtain a news source or "feed", contact Internet:

Regular electronic mail access is also available via:

  • Internet, BITNET, EARN, or JANET.
  • Modem through the GenBank® On-line Service (415/962-7364).

Request Chromosome 22 Newsgroup subscription via electronic mail to one of the following BIOSCI nodes:*

  • Ireland - EARN/BITNET:
  • United Kingdom - JANET:
  • Sweden - Internet:
  • United States - Internet/BITNET:

*Users in other parts of the world may contact either the U.S. or Ireland nodes.

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.
