Human Genome Project
The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort formally begun in October 1990 to discover all the estimated 30,000-40,000 human genes and make them accessible for further biological study. Another project goal was to determine the complete sequence of the 3 billion DNA subunits (bases in the human genome). As part of the HGP, parallel studies have been carried out on selected model organisms such as the bacterium E. coli to help develop the technology and interpret human gene function. The DOE Human Genome Program and the NIH National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) together made up the U.S. Human Genome Project. JGI's effort in this landmark project went toward sequencing human chromosomes 5, 16, and 19.
Looking for a Cosmid/BAC
The best way to obtain CIT (CalTech) clones is to order directly from Research Genetics, part of the Invitrogen corporation.
RP11 and RP13 clones can be obtained from from Pieter de Jong's "BACPAC" resource at Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (a.k.a. CHORI)
This page has links to both library information and detailed ordering information.
Cosmids can be obtained from Geneservice.
For more information, see the Livermore cosmid page.
