The Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS), with support from the DOE Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues program, is offering single copies of three educational modules at $4 each for shipping and handling. Designed for use by high school and college teachers and students, these modules provide background information and classroom activities and explore ethical, legal, and social issues related to the module's topic.

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.
