The Department of Energy (DOE) Human Genome Program held its Second Contractor-Grantee
Workshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on February 17-20, 1991. Almost all the DOE-supported
projects were represented, either by oral presentations or by posters. More than 200 DOE-supported
scientists attended the meeting, in addition to invited guests and representatives from

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
