Documents Mailed to Subscribers
The following new publications were mailed in May to Human Genome News subscribers. These documents are available to anyone requesting copies.
Understanding Our Genetic Inheritance, The U.S. Human Genome Project: The First Five Years (FY 1991-1995), the 89-page joint DOE-NIH report, was published in April. The document states the scientific goals for the next 5 years, examines the current state of genome science, sets forth the complementary approaches of the two agencies, describes collaboration among U.S. and international groups, and presents budget projections for the project.
Human Genome 1989-90 Program Report, the 157-page DOE document published in March 1990, reports on the status of the OHER Human Genome Program and gives a brief background of the program, along with projected goals for the next 15 years. A research highlights section, narratives on major genome research efforts, and abstracts of work in progress are of special interest. Figures and captions provided by investigators give detailed information.

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.
