The 11th International Workshop on Human Gene Mapping (HGM 11) will be held August 18-22 in London. As a transition from earlier workshops, the first 2 days will include talks and workshop sessions on topics such as the genetic map, physical map, mapping panels, probe resources, and loci of particular interest. The final 2 days will consist of open discussion meetings on these and other topics and of plenary scientific talks by invited speakers on major issues in gene mapping.
Attendance is limited and priority will be given to authors of accepted abstracts. Deadline for receipt of abstracts is April 15.

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.
