New Institute at NIH
On April 20, the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services approved the establishment of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and, at the same time, the Office of Bioengineering, Bioimaging, and Bioinformatics (called OB3) was abolished. NIH is now proceeding with the selection of a NIBIB staff, director, and advisory council; and a Web site will be in place before the end of 2001.
Meeting Summary, Slides Available
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.
