Web Sites for Microbial Sequence Data

The complete genome sequence of Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum has been updated on the Genome Therapeutics Corporation (GTC)Web site, including annotation, comparative analysis, and maps. GTC has also released preliminary data from the first full shotgun assembly of the 4.1-Mb Clostridium acetobutylicum genome, including BLASTP2 summaries for probable coding open reading frames. This work is supported by the DOE Microbial Genome Program. [Contact: Douglas Smith, 617/893-5007, Fax: -9535; doug.smith@genomecorp.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.
