Project To Profile U.S. Biotechnology Faculty

An ambitious new project undertaken by the North Carolina Biotechnology Center will catalog all U.S. academic faculty working full time on biotechnology research. The project has received the support of three major funding agencies-NIH, National Science Foundation, and U.S. Department of Agriculture-as well as seven professional societies. The information gathered will be published this year in a computer database and as a directory, both for use by a wide variety of researchers, government agencies, and companies.

A broad definition of biotechnology will be used to include all research relating to cell biology, molecular biology, and genetics and involving new techniques such as recombinant DNA, monoclonal antibodies, and protein engineering. Research in a number of fields, including health care, agriculture, chemicals, and the environment, will be covered. For more information, call: 919/541-9366.

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.
