The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Contractor-Grantee Workshop
will be held Nov. 3-4, 1989, at the Santa Fe Hilton in Santa Fe, New
Mexico. The DOE Human Genome Steering Committee (HGSC) is organizing
the workshop for the Office of Health and Environmental Research
Approximately 150 representatives from all grantee and contractor projects are expected to attend this workshop and to present project highlights by giving either oral or poster presentations. The workshop, which the Santa Fe Institute is helping to coordinate, will be a major discussion topic at the HGSC meeting that follows on Nov. 5. Contractors/grantees should contact Sylvia J. Spengler, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, for technical information. For administrative information such as hotel arrangements, they should contact Andi Sutherland of the Santa Fe Institute.

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.
