Tech Transfer. The Federal Bio-Technology Transfer Directory , by Ronald A. Rader and Sally A. Young, lists all federal biomedical and biotechnology-related inventions, patents and patent applications, and technology transfers from 1980 through 1993. Some 2800 detailed abstracts, organized by agency or laboratory, describe 2100 inventions, 900 patent licenses, 510 cooperative research and development agreements (CRADAs), 85 inventions shared with other organizations, and 140 biological materials transfers. Over 570 inventions and 110 CRADAs involve genetic technologies, gene sequencing, or cloning. Information is included about licensees and CRADA collaborators, their development activities and strategic partnerships, and the status of products and technologies in process. Extensive indexes. 678 pp., 1994. [Information or order: Biotechnology Information Institute; 1700 Rockville Pike, Suite 400; Rockville, MD 20852-1631 (301/424-0255, Fax: -0257).]

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.
