DOE Office of Science Reports Now Available
The DOE Office of Science, which oversees the DOE Human Genome Program, has completed and published Strategic Plan, Science Portfolio, and Strategy at a Glance. These colorful companion reports can be downloaded from the Web; print copies: Christine Chalk (202/586-7203, firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Office of Science mission is to advance basic research and the instruments of science that are the foundations for DOE's applied missions, a base for U.S. technology innovation, and a source of remarkable insights into our physical and biological world and the nature of matter and energy.

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.
