NSF, DOE, and USDA have been soliciting proposals to begin - systematically sequencing the Arabidopsis thaliana genome. The project's ultimate goal is to complete the entire sequence within a reasonable time, by 2004 at the latest. To minimize duplication of effort and maximize efficient use of available resources, the project will be coordinated with other ongoing U.S. efforts, including NIH human genome and USDA plant genome research, and with other international programs.
Up to three 3-year awards are expected to be made in FY 1996, contingent on proposal quality and fund availability. Applications due to NSF by January 16, 1996. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss their plans with a project officer.

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.
