DOE Human Genome Program Activities

Contractor-Grantee Workshop Planned
The fourth DOE contractor-grantee workshop will be held November 13-17 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. At least one person from each funded group is expected to attend. Investigators should soon receive more details, including a request for abstracts for oral presentations and posters, from Sylvia Spengler [Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (510/486-4879, Fax: -5717, Internet:].

DOE FY 1994 Human Genome Program Report Under Way
Human Genome Management Information System (HGMIS) has begun requesting figures, photographs, and updated project abstracts from grantees and contractors for the fourth DOE Human Genome Program Report, to be published early in 1995. A timely response from investigators will greatly facilitate preparation of this document, which will be similar in scope and content to the red-covered 1991-92 report. Items should be sent to the HGMIS address on page 16. [Contacts for more information: Betty Mansfield (615/576-6669, Fax: -9888, Internet: or Anne Adamson (615/574-9851, Fax: -9888, Internet:]

The 1993 supplement to the 1991-92 program report will be distributed this spring.

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.
