  • The Human Genome Project: New Tools for Tomorrow's Health Research is a 19-page booklet that explains the basic science of the Human Genome Project, reviews its history, and briefly assesses progress.
  • Funding Opportunities for the Human Genome Project lists all the program announcements and information statements related to NCHGR funding in support of the Human Genome Project.
  • Index Marker Catalog lists index-quality markers and interim maps available as of March of this year. Characterized by a heterozygosity of at least 70%, the markers include restriction fragment length polymorphisms and markers based on microsatellites or other DNA sequences. The catalog, an interim summary of the index marker/framework map project [see HGN 3(2), 1-2 (July 1991)], includes information on accessing the markers and using them to localize genetic markers to specific intervals.

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.
