GDB Seeks Comments on Schema

GDB is seeking feedback on the schema for version 6.0 of the database. GDB V6 is a major redesign that includes an enhanced map representation, support for direct community submission and curation of data, and other improvements based on an object-oriented data model.

All interested members of the genome community are encouraged to view the schema, which is available in Postscript format on GDB's WWW server [] under GDB Future Plans. Suggested changes will be implemented with the 6.1 release or later, and a public comment period will be a regular feature of future GDB development schedules. [Schema comments:, general GDB inquiries:]

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.

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.
