Map Manager

Map Manager is a program for the Macintosh personal computer that helps analyze the result of genetic-mapping experiments using backcrosses, intercrosses, or recombinant inbred strains. The specialized program allows easy storage, retrieval, and display of information from such mapping experiments and also has tools for statistical analysis of experimental results. Two new versions of Map Manager are under development:

  • Map Manager QT, with functions for analysis of quantitative traits, is now at Version QTb8.
  • Map Manager XP, for Windows and Macintosh OS, allows analysis of intercrosses with dominant markers and crosses with mixed segregation patterns. Map Manager XP is expected to be available for user testing by January 1997. When it is ready for general release, all current Map Manager users will receive it by mail.

Map Manager was created and is maintained by Kenneth Manly, Robert Cudmore, Jr., and Greg Kohler at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. It is supported by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation and a subcontract from the Jackson Laboratory Mouse Genome Informatics Project funded by NIH.

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.
