The Department of Energy (DOE) Human Genome Program held its Second Contractor-Grantee Workshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on February 17-20, 1991. Almost all the DOE-supported projects were represented, either by oral presentations or by posters. More than 200 DOE-supported scientists attended the meeting, in addition to invited guests and representatives from a number of interested industries. Benjamin Barnhart, Manager, Human Genome Program, Office of Health and Environmental Research (OHER), welcomed the attendees and gave a brief overview of research that would be presented as platform and poster sessions throughout the 3-day workshop.
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.
