Federal Technology Funding Guide
The fifth edition of the 2001 Federal Technology Funding Guide may be downloaded free in PDF (printer-friendly) format. Created by the Los Angeles Regional Technology Alliance (larta), the 152-page guide profiles nearly 100 regularly scheduled federal programs that support technology development and deployment. More than half of all U.S. research and development (over $77 billion) is funded by the federal government. [Larta contact: 213/743-4150]
The electronic form of the newsletter may be cited in the following style:
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.
