Quantitative Traits Mapping Program

MIM v1.2 implements the Multipoint IBD method (Goldgar, 1990; Goldgar and Oniki, 1992) for partitioning genetic variance of quantitative traits to specific chromosomal regions using data on nuclear families. More complex pedigrees must be decomposed into groups of nuclear families to enable use of this program. MIM allows multiple analyses from the same input file and has an enhanced error-checking routine and user-friendly file format. The program is written in C for a UNIX workstation but should be readily portable to a wide variety of computer systems.

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.
