HUGO Plans Single-Chromosome Workshops


Single-chromosome workshops are playing an increasingly important role in the international Human Genome Project. The Human Genome Organisation (HUGO) has made planning and running these workshops a central part of its activities.

HUGO offices in Bethesda (Maryland) and London now keep updated records related to single-chromosome workshop times and locations. The office staff can help with information about funding sources, and a common format for application to funding agencies is being worked out to ease the process of getting financial support.

Persons who know of more contact people for the workshops listed or of plans for other workshops are asked to communicate this information to either of the HUGO offices and to HGMIS for inclusion in the calendar of genome events.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

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.

Human Genome News

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
