Introductory Linkage Course

A course for researchers who have a basic understanding of linkage analysis but little or no experience in using linkage programs will be held June 12-16 at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City. Topics will include an introduction to linkage analysis, practical aspects of data collection, strategies and methods of linkage analysis, incomplete penetrance (narrow and wide definition), inbreeding loops, simple risk calculations, and introduction to computer simulation. A major part of the course will consist of exercises using LINKAGE software programs. Attendance is limited to 30. [Contact: Katherine Montague (212/960-2507, Fax: /568-2750,]

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.
