Want to get a quick count of the genes in GDB? Or clones, amplimers, citations? Are you curious about how many genes have been localized to a particular chromosome? Help is on the way.
The Genome Database recently added a Reports and Statistics section to its Web site. There you'll find weekly counts of a number of classes in the database. Currently only a few categories are listed, but GDB plans to expand these reports to include other classes such as maps and polymorphisms. The Reports and Statistics section is available via the U.S. GDB home page or directly (http://www.gdb.org/gdb/report.html).
2013 post-production note: GDB (Wikipedia) is no longer operational. See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/projects/genome/guide/human/index.shtml

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.
