Discovery Channel School

Discovery Channel School, an innovative educational service for K-12 teachers, debuted online on March 4. The site describes more than 50 hours of documentary programs on the Discovery and Learning channels and includes video previews of all 35 episodes of Assignment Discovery, the commercial-free series designed for teachers to tape and use in grades 6-12 classrooms. Experienced educators known as Subject Area Managers provide peer support by suggesting related activities, insights, and Internet links. The DOE Human Genome Program Web site (https://science.osti.gov/) was listed as a link for Next Step: Future Technologies (Part 1), which will air again on May 20 from 9:00 to 9:30 a.m.

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.
