The Human Genome Organization (HUGO) has announced its 1992 Council, with the terms of new members expiring in 1994.
Other HUGO activities involve the small HUGO task force on yeast artificial chromosomes (YACs), chaired by Gert-Jan van Ommen (Leiden University, Netherlands). The group is now compiling inventories of both chromosome-specific and genomic YAC libraries [see HGN 3(4), 12-13 (November 1991)]. Information on these libraries will be available through the HUGO offices and in Human Genome News.
To make the inventories as complete and useful as possible, the task force requests that investigators making and screening YAC libraries contact HUGO with information such as insert size and co-ligation frequency. A list of other needed data can be faxed to investigators upon request.

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.
