New GDB Remote Node Opens in Australia

To increase GDB accessibility outside the United States, a series of official, self-supporting distribution nodes (remote user sites) is being established to offer database and user support services equivalent to those available from GDB in Baltimore. In addition to the remote nodes in the United Kingdom and Germany, Australia is now offering online service.

The Australian node is run by the Australian National Genomic Information Service (ANGIS), an arm of the Australian Genomic Information Center at the University of Sydney. The service, intended primarily for users in Australia, is also accessible internationally via the Australian Academic and Research Network (AARNet) and Internet. Modest registration fees help support this node.

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.
