Human Genome News Archive Edition
A new 23-minute video, loaned free, describes the international Human Genome Project and discusses genetic linkage mapping, physical mapping, DNA sequencing, and the social and ethical problems that may arise from data produced by the application of these new tools. Produced by the National Center for Human Genome Research (NCHGR) and intended for high school age and older, the video features James Watson (NCHGR), C. Thomas Caskey (Baylor University College of Medicine), David Housman (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Nancy Wexler (Hereditary Disease Foundation), and Robert F. Murray, Jr. (Howard University College of Medicine).

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.
