The DOE Human Genome Program recently initiated a WWW home page (http://www.ornl.gov/meetings/) to provide information on future and past conference proceedings of interest to all genome researchers. The complete evolution of some meetings could include electronic registration and abstract submission, agenda and abstract postings, selected figures, and full reports.
HGMIS will link to or incorporate text for genome-related meetings. DOE grantees who are organizing genome meetings are encouraged to contact HGMIS to add their links or text to the meetings site.
The electronic form of the newsletter may be cited in the following style:

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.
