Yeast Genome Directory

Published as a separate supplement to the May 29th issue of Nature, the Yeast Genome Directory contains papers on the sequence of all unpublished Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosomes (IV, V, VII, IX, XII, XIII, XIV, XV, and XVI), along with gene maps and tables summarizing the yeast genome’s structure and gene properties. The yeast genome sequence was released to the public last year on the Web (http://www.yeastgenome.org/). The directory also contains a "News and Views" article by Craig Venter (The Institute for Genomic Research) on the implications of yeast genome research (Nature Web site, http://www.nature.com).

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.
