Mapping Panel from Coriell

Coriell Institute is distributing the Human-Rodent Somatic Cell Hybrid Mapping Panel #2, Version 3, as cell cultures or DNA from the Human Genetic Mutant Cell Repository of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. Version 3 consists of 24 human-rodent somatic cell hybrids, each retaining a single intact human chromosome. The new monochromosomal hybrids for chromosomes 6 (GM/NA11580) and 14 (GM/NA11535) retain the human chromosome in 100% and 92% of the cells, respectively. The panel has been characterized by (1) G-banded chromosome analysis, (2) in situ hybridization using biotinylated total human DNA, (3) Southern blot hybridization, and (4) PCR analysis.

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.
