HUGO Invites Applications

The Human Genome Organization (HUGO) will hold its annual election of new members this summer. Now composed of 538 members from 35 countries, HUGO invites applications from anyone actively interested in human genome research. Application forms are available from HUGO members and the offices of HUGO Americas and HUGO Europe (note new address for HUGO Europe).

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.
