New Mapping Kit for
Human Chromosome 1

The American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), in conjunction with the Centre d'Etude du Polymorphisme Human (CEPH) and supported by the NIH National Center for Research Resources, is distributing a mapping kit (ATCC #77175) for human chromosome 1. The kit contains 16 DNA probes (15 recombinant plasmids and 1 cosmid, 5 µg DNA each) to detect a subset of ordered genetic markers from the CEPH consortium linkage map of human chromosome 1 [Genomics 9, 686-700 (1991)]. $225. [Contact for ordering kit: 12301 Parklawn Drive; Rockville, MD 20852-1776 (301/881-2600; Fax: 301/231-5826). Contact for technical information on using the probes in the kit: William Nierman at ATCC address above (Fax: 301/770-1848) or Howard Cann at CEPH in Paris (Fax: {Int.} 33/1-40-18-02-55)].

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.
