Hilton Head Sequencing Meeting

Lloyd Smith (University of Wisconsin, Madison) reported to the NIH Advisory Council that encouraging progress was demonstrated at the September 17-21, 1994, Hilton Head sequencing meeting. As part of that meeting, Robert Strausberg and Carol Dahl (Chief and Program Director, respectively, NCHGR Sequencing Technology Branch) conducted a useful workshop on a range of sequencing issues, particularly those related to closure. Smith noted that community members were cautiously optimistic about meeting sequencing goals, but they felt progress continues to be hampered by the shortfall in grant support. He also pointed out that industry is becoming more involved in sequencing efforts.

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.
