University of Michigan Human Genome Center Holds Workshops

The University of Michigan Human Genome Center in Ann Arbor will offer workshops for genetic counselors and high school science teachers this summer. Purposes of the workshops are to provide instruction in molecular genetics and encourage attendees to incorporate the study of genome technology and its implications into their everyday counseling or classes. Application information is given below.

  • Genetic Counselors. An NIH-supported short course on molecular genetics will be held August 1-7 for U.S. genetic counselors. Registration fee and other expenses will be the responsibility of attendees. [Contact: Diane Baker (313/763-2933, Fax: -3784)].
  • High School Science Teachers. Two DOE- and NIH-supported hands-on workshops for secondary science teachers from the Great Lakes region will be offered July 12-16 and August 16-20. Assistance is provided for travel, lodging, and subsistence. Enrollment is limited to eight teachers each from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.

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.
