RHMAP and SIMLINK, two software programs for genetic analysis, are distributed via WWW. RHMAP is used for statistical analysis of radiation hybrid mapping data, and SIMLINK is used to evaluate the statistical power of a proposed linkage study. Both are written in FORTRAN 77 and previously were distributed free on floppy diskettes only.

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.

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
