DNA Quiz on WWW

As part of a basic course in molecular biology at Göteborg University in Sweden, a self-paced quiz is available on the Web (url no longer available). Questions are presented one at a time; only by giving the right answer can the user proceed to the next question. Most questions are related to DNA and protein sequence information, including building blocks of nucleic acids and proteins, nucleic acid structure, nucleotide and amino acid - sequences, restriction enzymes, transcription, and the genetic code and translation.

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.
