GDB Adds EST Data

GDB now includes 8,977 locus and cloned probe records of over 9,000 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) downloaded from the dbEST database of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Both types of records contain references to GenBank numbers, and locus records are assigned D-numbers that have been returned to NCBI to update corresponding records in dbEST. The easiest way to access this data in GDB is first to retrieve the GDB identification number G00-043-725 in the Citation Manager, then call either Probe or Locus Manager to retrieve the EST data.

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.
