Informatics Resource

Version 3.0 of the Listing of Molecular Biology Databases (LiMB), a tool for locating and accessing data sets and designing and linking pertinent databases, has been released. LiMB contains (1) a brief database list, (2) a data dictionary describing the meanings of fields in a LiMB entry, (3) a full database list, and (4) a cross index of databases and data types. LiMB data are gathered from questionnaires, journals, and the BIOSCI electronic bulletin board.

This preliminary release, to be confirmed by a full questionnaire cycle, offers over 100 databases (25 more entries than release 2.0). To acquire LiMB, send the message text (limb-data) to ( For information only, send the message text (limb-info) to the same address.

Additional copies of LiMB in hardcopy or floppy disk are available on request. [Contact: Christian Burks; LiMB; Theoretical Biology and Biophysics Group, T-10, K710; Los Alamos National Laboratory; Los Alamos, NM 87545 (505/667-7510, 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.

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.
