Human Chromosome and Genetic Databases Objectives: 1. Utilize databases to determine chromosome location, gene symbols, gene function, nucleotide and protein sequences. 2. Identify several NCBI Entrez databases 3. Discuss the differences between genetic and physical maps. Introduction: The Human Genome Project (HGP), which began in 1990, had as its goal the complete sequence of the human genome. Since the total number of nucleotide bases was estimated to be 3 billion, international cooperation was required to do this very labor and computer-power intensive task. A draft sequence of the human genome was announced in June 2003, and the entire sequence was completed in April 2003. In addition to the human genome sequence, the sequence of many other organisms has been completed, and the completion of additional ones is announced frequently. Sequencing genomes can be approached in two different ways. One is the mapping approach, which involves genetic and physicals maps. The other approach is
