Chromosome 4 Networking

An e-mail message may be sent to everyone on the Stanford University Human Genome Mapping Center (HGMC) chromosome 4 mailing list by ftp at the address chrom4@toolik.stanford.edu. To see the mailing list, log on by anonymous ftp and retrieve the file chrom4_ftp_list from the directory pub/hgmc/misc.

Primer pairs are obtainable from Research Genetics for 935 HGMC sequence tagged sites (STSs) on human chromosome 4 [see Human Molecular Genetics 2(8), 1271þ88 (1993)]. Details of all the STSs-including names, Genome Data Base locus names, GenBank accession numbers, primer sequences, polymerase chain reaction fragment size, and bin number-are available on the anonymous ftp server (toolik.stanford.edu) in the pub/hgmc/sts_data directory. Requests to Research Genetics should state that the STSs are from HGMC and should include locus name and STS name. [Research Genetics; 2130 Memorial Parkway SW; Huntsville, AL 35801 (800/533-4363 or 205/533-4363, Fax: /536-9016; United Kingdom, 800/89-1393)].

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.
