New ASM Report Looks at Small-Scale Solutions
Global Environmental Change: Microbial Contributions, Microbial Solutions, a new report from the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), suggests that microbiology can provide solutions to such serious environmental challenges as the increase in greenhouse gases and other stresses. Written by Gary M. King (University of Maine), James Tiedje (Michigan State University) and the ASM Committee on Environmental Microbiology, the report makes four recommendations for enhancing microbiological solutions to global change:

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.
