Booklet on Structural Biology Basics

The Structures of Life, a new 60-page, full-color booklet from the NIH National Institute of General Medical Sciences, explains how structural biology provides insight into health and disease and is useful in creating new medications. Geared toward an advanced high-school or early college-level audience, the booklet also features "Student Snapshots" designed to inspire young people to consider careers in biomedical research (available through http://www.nigms.nih.gov/news/science_ed/structlife/ ).

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.

Human Genome News

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
