Complete Microbial Genome Clones

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;

  • Haemophilus influenzae Rd, ATCC 51907 (Science 269, 496-512, 1995);
  • Methanococcus jannaschii (Science 273, 1058-73, 1996);
  • Mycoplasma genitalium G37, ATCC 33530 (Science 270, 370-403, 1995);

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 .)

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.

Human Genome News

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
