The American Type Culture Collection and The Institute for Genomic Research have created a new special collection to store and distribute clones resulting from the complete sequences of three microbial genomes;
Purified DNA from these organisms also will be available from ATCC. (Sequence and specific clone information: http://www.tigr.org/tdb/mdb/mdb.html; ordering: http://www.atcc.org/hilights/microbe_gene.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.
