The GDB Human Genome Database Company Profile

03:40 EDT 20th September 2017 | BioPortfolio

In 1989 the Howard Hughes Medical Institute provided funding to establish a center for the collection of human genetic mapping data. This project ultimately resulted in the creation of the GDB Human Genome Database in 1990. Established under the leadership of Dr.'s Peter Person and Dick Lucier, GDB received significant financial support from the US Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health. Located at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, GDB became a source of high quality mapping data which were made availble both on-line as well as through numerous printed publications.What set GDB apart from other biological databases, was its use of world-class leaders in human genetics to act as curators for the data. In order to ensure a high degree of quality, records within GDB were subjected to a process of peer-review, not unlike a traditional publication. Due to the International collaboration which made up the human genome project, GDB received funding from numerous sources in both Europe and Asia.In 1998, the change of focus in the human genome project redicected funds which were previously available for GDB. However that same year, Dr. A. Jamie Cuticchia obtained funding from Canadian public and private sources to continue the the operations of GDB. While the data curation continued to be performed at Johns Hopkins, GDB central operations were moved to The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
