The HUGO Americas ad hoc physical mapping advisory committee met in San Francisco on July 27 to formulate plans for HUGO Americas' approach to NIH and DOE for possible funding. The committee's memorandum stated that some desirable physical mapping roles for HUGO would be to:
The memorandum states that HUGO would select or approve workshop chairs and assist in fund-raising and in organizing and running the meetings. The memorandum also established the following policies concerning workshops:
All three regional components of HUGO (Americas, Asia, and Europe) will probably organize workshops under HUGO sponsorship. To help HUGO Americas get started, the committee developed a proposal of policies and procedures for organizing workshops. The committee also drew up a tentative list of high-priority chromosome meetings likely to be held in the United States in the next 18 months.

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.
