NSF Quantitative Systems Biology Report
The report of the National Science Foundation Workshop on Quantitative Systems Biotechnology (QSB), held in September 2000, is on the Web. QSB is defined as engineering research to augment the prediction of a living organism's phenotypic behavior from genomic information and environmental conditions. Workshop objectives were to suggest the scope of a new QSB program solicitation and to examine the possibility of conducting an international study in this area.
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.
