Human Genome News, October-December 1996; 8:(2)
Topic: Ten postdoctoral fellowships to catalyze career transitions into computational molecular biology from other scientific fields. These fellowships are funded by DOE and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to give young scientists an intensive 2-year postdoctoral opportunity in an appropriate molecular biology laboratory. Selections will be announced in June 1997, and funding can begin any time after September 1, 1997.

Topic: To develop novel genomic-scale technologies for the study of genome function and sequence variation. These technologies will facilitate, among other things, elucidation of the biological roles of gene products and noncoding functional elements, interactions among functional elements in the cell, biological consequences of genome organization, dynamics of polymorphisms in populations, and the functional significance of genomic variation.

NIH National Research Service Award Fellowships
Topic: To engage in research relevant to the Human Genome Project. Postdoctoral, senior postdoctoral, and minority predoctoral fellowships are available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents; research in ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) is not open to predoctoral students through this program.
Contacts: ELSI topics, Eric Meslin (301/402-4997, firstname.lastname@example.org); all other topics, Bettie Graham ( at NCHGR)

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.
