Genome Database (GDB), which provides human gene mapping data to human genetics researchers from its base at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, will cease operations by July 31, 1998. GDB's principal funder, the DOE Office of Energy Research, is discontinuing support to focus its informatics resources on the sequencing phase of the Human Genome Project. The servers for continued access to the current copy of GDB will be maintained in Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Computational Bioscience Section (http://compbio.ornl.gov), headed by Ed Uberbacher. This will be a static version of the database, and no further development is now contemplated. (Full GDB termination statement)
