Library Screening Services

  • A copy of the 3x coverage RPCI-1 human genomic PAC library, developed by Pieter de Jong (Roswell Park Cancer Institute) under DOE sponsorship, has been deposited at BIOS Laboratories. The library is available as a screening service individually or in combination with FISH mapping and chromosome localization with somatic cell hybrid panels. The dual mapping results confirm gene localizations to specific human cytogenetic bands. (BIOS Laboratories: 800/678-9487 or 203/773-1450, Fax: 800/315-7435)
  • Genome Systems offers custom PCR or hybridization screening of three human libraries. The PAC library is from de Jong's laboratory; P1 and BAC libraries were developed using DNA from an anonymous source. Genome Systems also offers preparation and sequencing of genomic clones and chromosomal localization via FISH.

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.
