SQL Access to GDB SYBASE Tables

A SYBASE server containing the GDB SYBASE tables now enables utilization of the structured query language (SQL) to query GDB directly at the general-access computer in Baltimore. Requirements for using this service include Internet access and a license from Sybase, Inc., to run front-end software such as interactive SQL (ISQL) or Data Workbench (DWB). To obtain an SQL account, users should contact GDB User Support for a registration form. An SQL user may also have a GDB account for accessing GDB though front-end software, but this is not required.

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.
