Human Genome News Archive Edition
Human Genome News, January 1993; 4(5)
A special issue of Los Alamos Science (No. 20, 1992) focuses on the genome program at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The 338-page volume, containing numerous excellent graphics, includes an introduction to the Human Genome Project; principles of classical and molecular genetics; mapping goals and technologies, particularly for chromosome 16; informatics; rapid DNA sequencing; ethical, legal, and social issues; and descriptions of the basic ideas and challenges behind the research. [Limited number of copies available from the Center for Human Genome Studies; LANL, MS M885; Los Alamos, NM 87545 (505/667-3912)].

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.
