Chromosome X Virtual Workshop

To accompany the June 15-18 X Chromosome Workshop in Banff, Alberta, a "virtual" workshop is being assembled by Bob Cottingham and David Nelson (both at Baylor College of Medicine) at http://gc.bcm.tmc.edu:8088/chrx/home.html . Through this page, users can participate in online dialog about X chromosome mapping and access workshop details and a list of participants and abstracts.

Web Site

Jurg Ott's group (Columbia University) recently set up a WWW site that includes announcements on genetic linkage courses, newsletters, software, and publications (http://linkage.cpmc.columbia.edu). Linkage-analysis packages are also available via ftp (ftp linkage.cpmc.columbia.edu ).

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.
