Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) Release 2.0

The MGI Web site ( provides integrated access to various information resources on the genetics and biology of the laboratory mouse. The site includes the Mouse Genome Database, Gene Expression Database (GXD), and Encyclopedia of the Mouse Genome.

  • New Gene-Expression Data and Query Form: Data set of RT-PCR assays produced by Tom Freeman's laboratory represents analyses of 517 genes in 46 mouse tissues from animals 6 to 8 weeks old and studies of tissues from 15-day-old mouse embryos. Additional gene-expression data sets will be publicly available soon.
  • Gene-Expression Data Query Form: Users can search for expression data related to specified genes, anatomical structures, or developmental stages. Query results can be returned as listing of assays or assay results.
  • Reorganized and Simplified Linkage Maps Form: Users can generate a linkage map display of markers retrieved from the database. They can view a mouse chromosome or chromosomal region and may choose to include homologies from another selected species, syntenic markers, and DNA segments or add new marker information.
  • AXB-BXA Mapping Data Sets in EXCEL Format via Ftp: Produced by Beverly Paigen (Jackson Laboratory), new and revised AXB and BXA typings represented in RI mapping experimental data records will be incorporated into MGD's composite RI data sets.
  • Revised Data-Submission Guidelines: Facilitate e-mail MGD data submission.
  • 1998 Chromosome Committee Reports Online

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.
