Systematic efforts to map, clone, and determine the entire DNA base sequence for several model organisms are considered crucial in developing strategies and tools for large-scale sequencing of the human genome. Human Genome Project short-term sequencing goals through 1998 include the following.

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.
