Willana Consultants, Cheshire, U.K., is conducting an
international survey of instrumentation technologies and
methodologies being used for DNA (mapping and sequencing) of the
human genome. Sponsored by the Human Genome Management Information
System (HGMIS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the survey
The results of the study will be published in the spring of 1990 as a technical report and will be available from the HGMIS.
Willana Consultants' William J. Martin and Paul F. G. Sims, who are conducting the survey, invite scientists and engineers to submit relevant material to them by September 30, 1989. Acknowledgement for information received and incorporated into the text will accompany the appropriate material in the report.

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.
