An ad hoc committee representing the community of Arabidopsis researchers met June 8-9 in Arlington, Virginia, to explore the feasibility of a large-scale, federally funded U.S. Arabidopsis thaliana genome project. The committee agreed that a project should begin as soon as possible and recommended continuing collaborations with participants in the Multinational Coordinated Arabidopsis Genome Research project, especially the European Community Arabidopsis genome sequencing program.
The group urged that funds be provided for the following:
The committee's report has been posted on the Arabidopsis newsgroup (Arabidopsis@net.bio.net), with hard copies available from Machi Dilworth; National Science Foundation; 4201 Wilson Blvd., Rm. 685; Arlington, VA 22230 (703/306-1422, Fax: -0349, Internet: email@example.com).

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.
