GDB and OMIM data are available via several WWW searching methods through the JHU computer in Baltimore. From a GDB/OMIM login account, at the Main Menu select Local Databases, then Internet WWW Access.

"GDB Browser" and "OMIM Using HTML+Query Forms" require a WWW client that supports HTML+ forms. Users accessing WWW via X Windows through the JHU computer in Baltimore automatically use Xmosaic2.x, and those with character-based terminals use Lynx2.x. Any WWW client can be used to access the other databases and resources, including GDB WAIS (Wide Area Information Servers), OMIM, GDB anonymous ftp, JHU Gopher, and a variety of biological information worldwide. Users with a WWW client can access the GDB Home Page directly via the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) http://www. gdb.org/.

[2013 Post-publication note: GDB is no longer active. See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genome instead.]

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.
