BAC Libraries Available

In collaboration with researchers led by Melvin Simon (California Institute of Technology), Research Genetics has constructed mouse and human genomic BAC libraries from which DNA pools, high-density membranes, and individual clones are now available. Library clones are arrayed in 384-well microtiter plates. For each library, large genomic DNA is prepared from cultured mouse 129/sv or human 978SK cell lines. Average insert size is 100 to 150 kb.

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.
