[National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)]: Informs the biology community about NCBI research activities and the availability of database and software services. The NCBI mission is to develop new information technologies to aid in the understanding of fundamental molecular and genetic processes that control health and disease. This goal involves (1) creating automated systems for storing and analyzing knowledge about molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics; (2) performing research into advanced methods of computer-based information processing; (3) facilitating the use of databases and software; and (4) coordinating efforts to gather biotechnology information worldwide. Three issues yearly. [Contact: NCBI; NLM; NIH; Building 38A, Room 8N- 803; 8600 Rockville Pike; Bethesda, MD 20894; Fax: 301/480-9241; Internet:]

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.
