Jay Russell Snoddy, a detailee from Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), was recently named the fifth member of the Human Genome Program staff of the DOE Office of Health and Environmental Research (OHER) in Germantown, Maryland. His responsibilities involve molecular and cellular biology within the DOE Human Genome Program and the Health Effects and Life Sciences Research Division; he also serves as a member of the OHER Human Genome Task Group and Health Effects Task Group.
Snoddy received his B.S. degree in 1980 from Bucknell University with honors in Biology. His Ph.D. thesis research in the laboratory of Peter Lengyel at Yale University involved genetic mapping and DNA sequencing of a family of mouse genes whose expression is strongly unregulated by interferons.
Snoddy worked for 2 years with Harinder Singh at the University of Chicago on the DNA transcription factors in B-cell lines. The primary focus of this research was somatic cell selection strategies using selectable markers under the tight transcriptional control of transcription-factor binding sites. Snoddy then joined Radomir Crkvenjakov and Radoje Drmanac in their work on sequencing by hybridization at ANL, where he designed an interface for data input and assisted in the computer-aided storage and interpretation of hybridization data.

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.
