GDB Standard Reports Available via FTP

A series of standard reports will be generated regularly for the GDB FTP server - ( or The first set is based on the content and style of tables accompanying the HGM 11 chromosome summary reports. Each report will contain a specific extract of GDB data and will be available in these formats: (1) PostScript files (very large) can be sent to the user's local PostScript printer to produce a formatted document of near-typeset quality. (2) Formatted ASCII files (smaller than PostScript files) produce human-readable copy. (3) Tab-delimited ASCII tables are in computer-readable format for input to the user's computer program. The README file in the gdb/report directory will describe the location and filenaming conventions for the report series. For information about FTP access or to suggest report enhancements or subjects for new reports, contact GDB User Support in Baltimore.

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.

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
