Utah Plans Mapping, Sequencing Workshop

A 2-week workshop for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows on state-of-the-art gene mapping and sequencing skills will be held June 13-26, 1993, at the University of Utah. In addition to providing an overall perspective, the workshop will involve hands-on experience in a variety of sequencing and mapping techniques. Medical applications of genome technology will be discussed thoroughly, and students will use genetic markers and linkage analysis to study a specific disease gene. Faculty and guest lecturers will include well-known genome researchers from the University of Utah, other universities, and national laboratories.

The fee includes tuition, most meals, activities, and hotel housing ($1160 double occupancy; $500 additional for private room). Applications for early acceptance due March 1, 1993. For a descriptive brochure and application, contact Genome Technology Workshop; Eccles Institute of Human Genetics; University of Utah; Bldg. 533, Room 2160; Salt Lake City, UT 84112 (801/585-5606, Fax: 581-7796, Internet:

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.

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
