The 1991 Minority Programs Symposium, sponsored by the NIH National Institute of General Medical Sciences, will be held November 3-6 in Washington, D.C.
The symposium, the largest U.S. gathering of minority scientists and students, is designed to promote minority involvement in ongoing biomedical research by presenting a vast array of career opportunities and available graduate-level educational experiences. The meeting also provides the opportunity for exhibiting organizations to meet qualified minority prospects for doctoral and other educational programs.

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.
