pact and interaction of environmental exposures on human disease. Specifically, polymorphisms of environmental disease susceptibility genes are being identified and a central database of polymorphisms for these genes is being developed. This database, developed in conjunction with the University of Utah Genome Center, integrates gene sequence and polymorphism data; see www.genome.utah.edu/genesnps/. The EGP Web site also offers links to databases maintained by other organizations, such as Gene Map 99 (a map of more than 30,000 human genes) and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Human Chromosome Map.
