OASCR Joins OBER in Genomes to Life Program
The DOE Office of Biological and Environmental Research (OBER) and Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (OASCR) have formed a strategic alliance to meet the challenges of studying complex systems. OASCR fosters and supports fundamental research in advanced scientific computing and computational science applied mathematics, computer science, and networking and operates supercomputer, networking, and related facilities. These tools enable researchers to analyze, model, simulate, and predict complex phenomena relevant to DOE's biological missions. The proposed Genomes to Life program fits readily into this portfolio.
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.
