GSDB Conversion Complete

Genome Sequence Data Base recently announced that the GSDB conversion is complete. GSDB 1.0 includes all public DNA sequence and feature data, which are accessible via their individual GSDB - accession numbers or their international collaboration accession numbers. GSDB 1.0 also supports a variety of such new data types as discontiguous sequences, alignments, sequence confidence values, and analysis results.

Bulk submissions can be made with the new GSDB Input-Output (GIO) format. Individual sequence submissions or feature updates can be made through the GSDB Annotator (see below). Basic sequence and feature retrieval and advanced query methods are available from the Web site. GSDB staff are available to help with submissions or Web queries.

The new GSDB Annotator (beta version) is a graphical client server application for Macintosh or Sun that allows users direct account-controlled read-and-write access to the database. [Information: http://www.ncgr.org/ or 505/982-7840]

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.
