Gene-Server Additions

The University of Houston Gene-Server recently added a series of servers for Drosophila, Arabidopsis, and nematode gene identification and analysis. They are, respectively:

  • dspl, aspl, and nspl (splice-site prediction for genes);
  • fexd, fexa, and fexn (exon finding in genes); and
  • fgened, fgenea, and fgenen (gene modeling).

Help files:; send man servicename in the subject line (e.g., Subject: man fexn). [Information on Gene-Server: HGN 7(1), 12 (May June 1995)]

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.
