U.S. Genome Research Funding
Investigators wishing to apply for funding are urged to discuss projects with agency staff before submitting proposals.
DOE Office of Biological and Environmental Research Human Genome Program
Research opportunities in energy-related life, biomedical, and environmental sciences, including human and microbial genomes, global change, and supporting disciplines.
Topic: Support career transitions into computational molecular biology from other scientific fields. Funded by DOE and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to give young scientists an intensive 2-year postdoctoral opportunity in an appropriate molecular biology facility.
DOE and NIH invite small business firms (under 500 employees) to submit grant applications addressing the human genome topic. The two agencies also support the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program to foster transfers between research institutions and small businesses.
National SBIR/STTR conference: April 9-11, 1999, Washington, D.C. For regional conferences, see Web site.

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.
