Enhancements to GDB Web Server

The WWW GDB Browser Locus Detail provides links to mammalian homology data from Jackson Laboratory. The browser is available via the GDB Home Page (http://www.gdb.org/).

The Probe Library Location Query allows searching for probes at specific plate, row, and column locations within a selected library. Links to this query are available from the GDB Browser and the Probe Query form.

Monthly lists of all new GDB citations include those entered through Medline retrievals and literature scanning by GDB staff. The lists, organized by chromosome, link to detailed information for each citation. ''Citations Relevant to GDB'' is under ''GDB Data Submission and Related Information,'' located on the GDB Home Page.

The GDB Web server in Baltimore has been modified to use a new file structure. As a result, the URLs for this server have changed, and users are advised to modify their links. The GDB Web mirror sites already use the new file structure and are not affected by this change.


2013 post-production note: GDB (Wikipedia) is no longer operational. See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/projects/genome/guide/human/index.shtml

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.
