Utah Workshop To Prepare Scientists, Physicians for Genome Research

The Utah Genome Center at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City plans an intensive 3-week training workshop, sponsored by the NIH National Center for Human Genome Research. To be held July 13-August 1, "Genome Technology" is designed to prepare scientists and physicians for genome research. Students may take 1 or more weeks of the course, which will examine a different research perspective each week. Instruction will be offered in large-scale DNA sequencing, informatics tools, and medical applications for genome technology. Students will receive hands-on laboratory and computer experience and will interact with outstanding faculty and speakers. Classes are limited to 16 students.

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.
