Human Genome News, September 1993; 5(3)

Resources Available: FTP Sites; Chromosome 4

The Human Genome Mapping Center (HGMC) at Stanford University has established an anonymous FTP site for rapid dissemination of chromosome 4 mapping data to interested investigators.To access the site, use the command ftp or ftp Use pub/uploads to deposit material, and send e-mail to to notify HGMC of the deposit, so it can be processed rapidly. Data is deposited mainly as ASCII (text) or postscript files in the pub/hgmc directory and its associated subdirectories. For more information about deposited data or the FTP site or to be informed through an electronic mailing list when new data is deposited, send a detailed e-mail message including name, affiliation, and full contact details to [HGMC; Department of Genetics; Stanford University; 855 California Avenue; Palo Alto, CA 94304 (415/812-1915, Fax: -1916).]

Resources Available: FTP Sites; Genetic Linkage Analysis

An anonymous FTP site is being made available for use by people interested in genetic linkage analysis. All software programs from the laboratory of Jurg Ott (Columbia University) are being uploaded to the FTP site. To access the site (preferably not in peak afternoon hours), use the command ftp or ftp When asked for a login name, enter anonymous. A password is not required. Reports of problems should be sent to Joe Terwilliger at [Material taken from Linkage Newsletter 7(2) (June 1993).

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.
