New HGMIS Site: Translation of Genetics to Medicine

At the request of medical professionals eager for translation of genomics to medical practice, the Human Genome Project Information suite of Web sites has added a new page called "Medicine and the New Genetics." This site covers topics of specific interest to physicians, nurses, genetic counselors, and allied health professionals. It contains information and links about disease prevention, diagnosis, and intervention; genetic-disease databases and support groups; gene testing; gene therapy; pharmacogenomics; genetic counseling; ethical, legal, and social issues associated with genetics; continuing medical education courses in genetics; publications; multimedia; professional societies; and other resources.

Medical professionals are asked to review the site and send comments and suggestions to HGMIS.

The electronic form of the newsletter may be cited in the following style:

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

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.
