French Journal on Bioethics Begins Publication

The International Journal of Bioethics, edited by Christian Byk, began publication in March. This quarterly journal is presented by the science, ethics, and law association known as the Milazzo Group, an international and multidisciplinary network for bioethics created in 1989.

The aim of the Milazzo Group, which takes its name from the Sicilian city in which it meets, is to promote international exchange of information and to foster multidisciplinary debate in the field of bioethics.

The group plans a conference in July 1991 to be devoted to the legal, ethical, and social consequences of mapping the human genome. Forthcoming issues of the journal will deal with topics related to the 1991 conference.

The journal, written in French and English, is available by subscription. Contact:

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.
