The NIH Division of Research Grants Genome Study Section held its first meeting on June 20-21 in Washington, D.C. Members reviewed grant applications and were oriented on NIH procedures.They advise NIH on grant applications for research on the characterization of the genomes of human and other organisms.
The study section meets three times a year to consider applications for several types of grant mechanisms: R01s (traditional research projects), R21s (pilot projects), R29s [First Independent Research Support and Transition (FIRST) Awards], and K04s (Research Career Development Awards).
Research areas include
The NIH Director appoints Genome Study Section members from the fields of cytogenetics, human genetics, molecular genetics, quantitative genetics, somatic cell genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, chemistry, biophysics, physics, and computer science.

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.
