NHGRI Initiates Mailing List
NIH NHGRI has initiated a mailing list for disseminating funding information to a wider audience. The list will be used infrequently to (1) send a brief summary of Program Announcements and Requests for Applications, along with a Web page pointer to the full text and (2) notify the community about new policies specifically for NHGRI grantees. Announcements about the ELSI Research program are sent from a separate list (ELSI@nhgri.nih.gov). To subscribe tot he mailing list, send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org and leave the subject line blank. Into the message, insert SUBSCRIBE NHGRIBULLETIN-L YOURNAME (type your name in place of YOURNAME). The listserv will obtain your e-mail address from your message. Do not include anything else in the body of the message.

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.
