The NIH National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has awarded a $25-million, 5-year contract to The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) to establish a center for functional genomics. The Pathogen Functional Genomics Resource Center (PFGRC) will centralize production, access, and training in the use of a variety of resources for exploring the roles of genes and gene products (including proteins) in a significant number of microbes known to cause disease. PFGRC, also funded by the DOE Microbial Genome Program, will be a multidisciplinary laboratory, resource, and teaching facility (http://pfgrc.tigr.org).

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.
