Human Genome News Archive Edition
Human Genome Quarterly, Summer 1989; 1(2)
The October issue of Genomics will feature three articles relevant to the human genome programs of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Benjamin J. Barnhart (DOE) and Elke Jordan (NIH) will author descriptions of their respective programs, and Robert M. Cook-Deegan will contribute an historical perspective pertaining to the 1984 Alta Conference, where the international human genome effort began.

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.
