Biologists Driving Synchrotron Use Rate
Life scientists (some 2400 of 6000) accounted for 40% of the users of the four DOE synchrotron light sources in 2000, according to DOE Associate Director for Biological and Environmental Research Ari Patrinos. Because of this demand, as many as 15 new synchrotron stations for protein crystallography are expected to open in the United States alone by 2003, and more stations are under consideration. If half the protein crystallography stations were devoted to high-throughput structure determination, Patrinos estimated, 30,000 such structures could be generated each year.

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.
