HUGO Invites Applications for Membership

The Human Genome Organization (HUGO) will hold its annual election of new members this summer. Now composed of 427 members from 32 countries, HUGO invites membership applications from anyone actively interested in human genome research. Application forms are available from the offices of HUGO Europe and HUGO Americas and from HUGO members.

For consideration this year, completed forms should be mailed, not faxed, to arrive at HUGO Europe by June 15. Applications must be supported by two HUGO members (not five, as was previously the case) and must be accompanied by a one-page curriculum vitae and a list of up to five key publications. Contact one of the HUGO addresses below (note new address for HUGO Americas):

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.
