Human Genome News Archive Edition

Human Genome News, January-March 1996; 7(5)

Computational Structure-Function Funding Available

Notice 96-03. Enhance understanding of structure-function relationships in biological macromolecules, particularly for diverse biotechnology applications.

These include development of drugs, new and improved biomaterials, enzymes for removing environmental contaminants, and biomass for fuels. Applications that integrate existing software in novel ways or develop new computational strategies to exploit databases are particularly interesting.

Due Dates: Preapplications: January 23, 1996; applications: April 25, 1996.

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.
