ATP Program Accelerating Genome Research Payoffs

The Tools for DNA Diagnostics component of the Advanced Technology Program (ATP) is accelerating payoffs from genome research, and several companies funded by ATP have built on DOE-sponsored research. Stanley Abramowitz (National Institute of Standards and Technology) explained that ATP's mission is to stimulate U.S. economic growth and industrial competitiveness by encouraging the development of high-risk but powerful new technologies. David Smith urged researchers with promising technologies to seek industrial partners, perhaps through the ATP program. [ATP Contact: Abramowitz (301/975-2587, Fax: /869-1150, stan@micf.nist.gov).]

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.

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