NSF Grants Offered

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate of Biological, Behavioral, and Social Sciences (BBS) has announced that grants are being offered in the following areas:

  1. A cross-disciplinary effort to foster the design, development, implementation, and use of information resources for managing the large amounts of archival information generated by research programs. Eligible activities include:
    • Planning and development of new public-use databases and software, methods, and tools.
    • Scientific data management research.
    • BBS data management training, including conferences and workshops.
    • BBS information management idea exchange.
    • Genomic applications, particularly for nonhuman model species.

    For information, contact Robert Robbins, 202/357-7652.

  2. The Arabidopsis Genome Research Initiative [HGN 2 (3): 13 (September 1990)]. For information, contact Machi Dilworth, 202/357-7652.

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.
