Promoting Safe and Effective Genetic Testing in the United States: Principles and Recommendations is now on the Web (http://www.genome.gov/10001733). This report, by the Task Force on Genetic Testing of the NIH-DOE Joint Working Group on Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications of Human Genome Research, supersedes the proposed recommendations and interim principles released early this year.

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.
