Mouse Workshop To Emphasize New Technologies, Other Areas

The Fifth International Mouse Genome Mapping Workshop will be held October 14-18 in Lunteren, the Netherlands. The program will concentrate on general strategies of genome analysis with emphasis on new technologies; logistical problems; sharing probes, oligonucleotides, and other resources; mouse models; biological resources; and informatics. Sufficient time will be allocated for individual chromosome committee meetings.

Abstracts of proposed presentations are required by August 1. Detailed information about the program, registration, facilities, accommodations, and transportation may be obtained from the workshop secretariat.

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.
