Genome-Related Teacher Workshops

Nine 2-week summer workshops on genetics and bioethics for secondary school biology teachers are scheduled in 1993 at various locations around the country. The workshops are part of Project Genethics, a 3-year program directed by Jon Hendrix and Thomas Mertens (Ball State University) and funded by the National Science Foundation. Attendees, limited to 24 at each workshop, are paid a $600 stipend and receive 4 semester hours of graduate credit. Two Saturday follow-up sessions are conducted at each site during the school year. For an application, call the area mentor teacher listed below after 5 p.m. at home.

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.

Human Genome News

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