Gene Sequence Analysis Tool

A new computer-based gene sequence analysis tool used to identify DNA regions involved in attachment to the nuclear matrix has been created by Gautam B. Singh [National Center for Genome Resources (NCGR)]. MAR-Finder, which uses statistical inference to deduce the presence of matrix-association regions in DNA sequences, is available through the center's Web site (now at: http://www.futuresoft.org/MAR-Wiz/).

MAR-Finder is among several new Web-based tools developed by NCGR's scientific staff to analyze gene sequences or improve access to sequences and valuable annotation in the center's Genome Sequence DataBase. Scientists in academia and private industry use the database and NCGR's bioinformatics services to conduct leading-edge research in genetics, medicine, and functional genomics.

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.
