Educational Kit on the HGP
The Human Genome Project and other sponsors have created a multimedia kit as an educational tool for high school students and the general public. The Human Genome Project: Exploring our Molecular Selves includes a CD-ROM with seven varied segments; The Secret of Our Lives, an award-winning video documentary; a commemorative wall poster; and Genetics, The Future of Medicine, an informational brochure. Request a free copy or use the kit online.
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.
