Genome Analysis Protocol Handbook
The ICRF Handbook of Genome Analysis, edited by Nigel Spurr (SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals) and others, is a combination protocol manual and information resource drawn from expert contributors at a number of research centers. It describes and evaluates a wide range of techniques, providing step-by-step protocols for genetic and physical mapping and DNA sequencing. The two volumes cover human and several model organism genomes. 1998. [Contact: Blackwell Science (800/759-6102 or 781/388-8250, Fax: -8255)]

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.
Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
