DIMACS Special Focus on Computational Molecular Biology
The Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) at Rutgers University is sponsoring the 2000-2003 Special Focus on Computational Molecular Biology. Workshops, seminar series, visitor programs, possible postdoctoral positions, and publications are planned. The very successful DIMACS Special Year on Mathematical Support for Molecular Biology began in 1994-95, with related activities continuing since then.
The electronic form of the newsletter may be cited in the following style:
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.
