Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy Human Genome Program
Human Genome News Archive Edition
Human Genome Quarterly, Winter 1990; 1(3)
At the DOE Contractor/Grantee Workshop, Benjamin Barnhart, Manager of the DOE Human Genome Program announced that sponsorship of this newsletter will become a joint venture between the DOE Office of Health and Environmental Research and the NIH National Center for Human Genome Research beginning with the spring issue. Becoming a bimonthly publication, this newsletter will be renamed the Human Genome News. Produced by the Human Genome Management Information System (HGMIS), the Human Genome News will assist the management of each agency's genome program by communicating issues relevant to human genome research to the public and by providing a forum for exchange of information to all individuals and agencies involved in genome research. Suggestions are welcome; please direct correspondence to the HGMIS address at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

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.
