This chart reflects the count of mapped and characterized genes stored in GDB. Gene characterization has been approved by the nomenclature and chromosome committees of the Human Genome Organisation. These counts are run weekly and can be accessed through http://www.gdb.org/gdbreports/CountGeneByChromosome.html

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.
