Human Genome News Archive Edition
The ELSI Bibliography: Ethical Legal & Social Implications of the Human Genome Project (Second Edition) and its 1994 supplement provide comprehensive lists of publications on major topics related to ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) of the Human Genome Project. Michael Yesley, Michael Roth, and Pilar Ossorio extracted the bibliography and supplement from a database compiled at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) with support by the ELSI component of the DOE Human Genome Program. Both volumes are available on request from LANL; MS A187; Los Alamos, NM 87545 (Fax: 505/665-4424, firstname.lastname@example.org).

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.
