Book on Tuskegee Conference
Plain Talk About the Human Genome Project is a 292-page paperback compilation of talks presented during a 3-day DOE-sponsored conference at Tuskegee University in September 1996. The talks were updated by presenters in November 1997. Distinguished leaders, scientists, ethicists, and educators spoke on wide-ranging topics related to the Human Genome Project's promise and perils, matters of race and diversity, and education about the project and its implications. For lay and academic readers, the book appends the DOE Primer on Molecular Genetics and lists useful Web sites. [Contact: Tuskegee University Publications Office (334/727-8035, Fax: /724-4451.

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.
