The journal Genome Science & Technology [HGN 8(1), 12] has changed its name to Microbial & Comparative Genomics. Due to recent accomplishments in sequencing the complete genomes of representatives from the three domains of life, the journal will focus on true comparative genomics.

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.
