DOE Supports Web Site for 1997 AAAS Symposium Talks
With the partial support of DOE, a Web site has been created to provide electronic audio access to presentations by nine distinguished speakers at the February 1997 symposium, "The Human Genome Project: What's the Public Got To Do With It?" In addition to these presentations, which were made at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Seattle, Washington, the site includes the transcript of a lively and informative presymposium dialogue conducted via the Internet.

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.
