DOE Announces Contractor-Grantee Workshop

The second DOE Contractor-Grantee Workshop will be held February 17-20, 1991, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The DOE Human Genome Coordinating Committee (HGCC) is organizing the workshop for the Human Genome Program of the Office of Health and Environmental Research to:

  • foster exchange of information among participants in the DOE Human Genome Program,
  • evaluate individual projects, and
  • evaluate the DOE program as a whole.

Representatives from all grantee and contractor projects are expected to attend this workshop and to present project highlights either orally or through one or more posters. Registration for the anticipated 200 attendees will be from noon until 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 17, with an evening session at 8 p.m. The workshop will conclude with an evening session on Wednesday, February 20. Results of the workshop will be a major focus of the HGCC meeting on February 21.

Contractors and grantees should send one-page, single-spaced, titled abstracts of their DOE-funded genome research to Sylvia Spengler by January 15, 1991. More details on housing will be sent to contractors and grantees.

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.
