The DOE Office of Health and Environmental Research is inviting grant applications for the Human Genome Program. Research areas cover (1) technologies and resources for physical mapping; (2) advanced technologies for DNA sequencing; (3) data management systems, and (4) ethical, societal, and legal issues. Details on these research areas and on the application procedure will be published in the Federal Register in early March.

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.
