DOE invites applications for FY 1996 research grants addressing privacy issues and the development of educational materials related to ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) arising from information and knowledge generated by the Human Genome Project. Solicitations for proposals were announced in the Federal Register 60(48), 13433-34 (March 13, 1995) and in Science and other publications. Applications due July 13. Before submitting proposals, potential applicants should discuss their projects with Daniel Drell; Office of Health and Environmental Research, ER-72 (GTN); DOE Office of Energy Research; Washington, DC 20585 (301/903-6488, email@example.com).

DOE and NIH invite small business firms (less than 500 employees) to submit grant applications addressing the human genome topic of SBIR programs. The two agencies also support the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program to foster transfers between research institutions and small businesses. Contacts:
National SBIR/STTR conferences: Washington, DC (October 16-18); Salt Lake City, UT (October 30-November 1); Dallas, TX (April 29-May 1, 1996). Conference hotline: 407/791-0720; electronic registration: 203/379-9427.

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.
