View Resource Science Magazine: A Gene Map of the Human Genome

The first report of the international research consortium organized to map gene-based sequence tagged site markers is now available on the web as an integrated gene map. The human genome is thought to harbor 50,000 to 100,000 genes, of which about half have been sampled to date in the form of expressed sequence tags. More than 16,000 human genes have been mapped relative to a framework map that...

View Resource GenStructure/bionet.genome.gene-structure: Genome and Chromatin Structure and Function Newsgroup

The purpose of this moderated newsgroup is to provide a proper forum for the discussion of issues pertaining to and involving genome and/or chromatin structure and function. Primarily it should enable those researchers who work in genome/chromatin structure or related fields to communicate ideas and information, as well as provide a chance for collaboration among national and international...

View Resource First Complete Sequence of the Human Genome

On April 6, Celera Genomics announced that it had completed the sequencing phase of one person's genome. It will now begin the process of assembling the sequenced fragments into their proper order with the aid of powerful computers. Work on this project began in September 1999 using a method called "whole genome shotgun sequencing," a quicker method than that used by the international Human Genome...

View Resource Science: Human Genome Special Issue

The week of 16 February 2001 scientists published a rough draft of the three billion letters of the human genetic code. Two complete sequences were actually released, one by a consortium of publicly funded laboratories and the other by a private venture, Celera Genomics. To mark this event, Science published the International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium and the US National Human Genome...

View Resource Physiological Genomics

Five journals with free (or recently extended) online trial periods were recently announced; online content includes full text, figures, and tables. The American Physiological Society has announced free, online access to Physiological Genomics through December 31, 2001; full text and abstracts are available from 1999. The journal is published in conjunction with Stanford University's HighWire...

View Resource The Genomic Revolution

In honor of the one-year anniversary of the first working draft of the human genome, the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) brings the Genomic Revolution to the Web. Divided into seven primary sections, which are further broken down into subsections (e.g., Gene Therapy, Nature and Nurture), the exhibit provides a good, basic introduction to the science of genetics. AMNH does attempt to...

View Resource University of California Santa Cruz Human Genome Symposium 2001 Webcast

A live webcast of the public forum, held in conjunction with the University of California - Santa Cruz Human Genome Symposium 2001, was transmitted from Santa Cruz on August 25, 2001. The entire Webcast can be viewed in a variety of formats (RealMedia, Windows Media, QuickTime, Cisco IP/TV, MacTV, or MIM). The purpose of the forum, which included experts in human genetics and biomedical research,...

View Resource DNA from the Beginning: An Animated Primer on the Basics of DNA, Genes and Hereditary

Maintained by the Cold Spring Harbor Research Laboratory and the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation, this animated DNA primer (last mentioned in the February 19, 1999 Scout Report) now has three major sections -- Classical Genetics, Molecular Genetics, and Genetic Organization and Control. Each section covers several concepts by description and in animation, along with interviews and biographies of...
