SBIR 1999 Human Genome Awards Announced
The DOE Office of Biological and Environmental Research has announced six PhaseI and three PhaseII awards for 1999 in genome, structural biology, and related technologies topics of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The highly competitive SBIR awards are designed to stimulate commercialization of federally funded research and development for the benefit of both the private and public sectors. SBIR emphasizes cutting-edge, high-risk research with potential for high payoff in hundreds of areas, including human genome research (contacts).

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.
