dFLASH Supports Databases

Release 1.1.0 of the dFLASH electronic mail server, a homologous sequence retrieval program for protein and DNA sequences, now supports the latest release of the GenBank, PIR, and SWISS-PROT databases. Full bibliographic references are optional, and new dFLASH features are described in the Help file. The server, which is still under development, is accessible through the Internet directly and through genQuest of Oak Ridge National Laboratory. To use dFLASH, send an e-mail message to dflash@watson.ibm.com with the server name in the subject line.

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.
