View Resource Nature: The Human Genome

This special Web Focus from the journal Nature presents research papers that "serve as the definitive historical record for the sequences and analyses of human chromosomes -- the ultimate results of the Human Genome Project." Papers are available for chromosomes 6, 7, 14, 20, 21, 22, and Y, which readers can access (no subscription required) by clicking on the image of the corresponding...

View Resource Sanger Institute-The Wellcome Trust: Vertebrate Genome Annotation (VEGA) database

A project of the Sanger Institute, "The Vertebrate Genome Annotation (VEGA) database is designed to be a central repository for manual annotation of different vertebrate finished genome sequence. In collaboration with genome sequencing centres, Vega attempts to present consistent high-quality curation of finished sequence." The site currently links to Human, Mouse, and Zebrafish Annotation...

View Resource University of Tokyo-Institute of Medical Science: Human Genome Center

The Human Genome Center was established in 1991 at the University of Tokyo's Institute of Medical Science. In pursuit of progress in the areas of human disease diagnosis, care, and prevention, the Center conducts genome research in Japan and participates in "international activities in database construction, mapping, and sequencing of the human genome." The Genome Center website contains links to...

View Resource Consensus CoDing Sequence Database

The Consensus CoDing Sequence (CCDS) Database "project is a collaborative effort to identify a core set of human protein-coding regions that are consistently annotated and of high quality. The long-term goal is to support convergence toward a standard set of gene annotations on the human genome." CCDS project collaborators include the National Center for Biotechnology (NCBI), European...

View Resource The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute: The Cancer Genome Project

Supported by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, the Cancer Genome Project (CGP) "is using the human genome sequence and high throughput mutation detection techniques to identify somatically acquired sequence variants/mutations and hence identify genes critical in the development of human cancers. This initiative will ultimately provide the paradigm for the detection of germline mutations in...

View Resource National Human Genome Research Institute

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) has many accolades to its credit, not the least being their work on sequencing the human genome. They have made substantial contributions to every sector of genomic research since their founding in 1989, and their website is one that will be very useful to researchers looking for grant opportunities, medical professionals, and members of the...
