Training Programs

Scientists with interdisciplinary skills are needed to achieve project goals and apply tools created for the genome project to a wide variety of scientific problems, including the biology underlying genetic diseases, the development of therapeutic and preventive strategies, new insights into human evolution, and agricultural and industrial applications. Active pre- and postdoctoral training programs have been established (see related article), and efforts are being made to recruit talented investigators from other fields. In addition, short courses are supported for rapidly disseminating developments in genomic sciences to the general scientific and ELSI communities.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

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.

Human Genome News

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
