New WWW Queries for GDB ID, Submissions, SQL

Four new applications are available from the WWW GDB Browser through the GDB Home Page ( first three applications are located near the top of the GDB Browser page, and the last is near the bottom.

  • GDB ID Query allows searching by single number, list or range of numbers, and GDB data type. Retrieved GDB ID numbers are linked to detailed object data.
  • Submission ID Query allows direct searching for a GDB Submission ID as given in a publication or linked to a GDB contact. Retrieved data includes information about the submission itself and the GDB ID numbers for all objects that are part of the submission set.
  • Ad Hoc SQL Query provides access to publicly available GDB databases.
  • GDB Schema Browser, which includes a link to GDB Schema Diagrams, is a tool for looking at descriptions and definitions of objects in databases associated with GDB.

2013 post-production note: GDB (Wikipedia) is no longer operational. See

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.
