A gene is a discrete sequence of DNA nucleotides.
- The Sanger Centre
- Named for Fred Sanger, the Sanger Centre is one of the centers of the Human Genome Sequencing Project. Their homepage has news and facts about the progress of various sequencing projects.
- National Center for Biotechnology Information
- An extensive site that has a lot of web resources used by research scientists to analyze sequence data. A good place to start is their Human Genome Resources, which lists news events, techniques and projects relating to the Human Genome Project.
- Genome Sequencing Center
- Located in St. Louis, the Genome Sequencing Center is one of the major sequencing centers in the United States. They have a nice overview of the overall process involved in sequencing a genome.
