CBIL Web Site

The Computational Biology and Informatics Laboratory (CBIL) at the University of Pennsylvania creates and maintains software and databases for computational biology. The CBIL Web site (http://agave.humgen.upenn.edu) includes the following:

  • bioWidgets for Java, a collection of classes for rapid development of graphics applications (applets) in the molecular biology domain.
  • Genome Annotation and Information Analysis (GAIA) storage system for genomic sequence and its annotation.
  • Database on the specific regulation of anumber of genes in muscle tissue (MTIR).
  • Human Genome Center for Chromosome 22 interface.
  • Databases developed by CBIL for public use.
  • Tools for computational biology.

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.
