DOE Office of Energy Research Invites Grant Applications

Notice 96-08: Promote substantive improvements in high-throughput, integrated approaches to large-scale human genome sequencing and its analysis.

Solicited topics: (1) supportive instrumentation and automation systems; (2) assembly of multimegabase-scale, ordered, sequence-ready DNA clones; (3) informatics for the rapid assembly, analysis, and annotation of data from high-throughput sequencing; and (4) informatics for facile submission, retrieval, and visualization of data for single or multiple related databases. These databases specifically include the Genome Database and Genome Sequence Data Base.

Notice 96-09. Address ethical, legal, and social issues that may arise from the use of information and knowledge resulting from the Human Genome Project.

These may include issues of privacy, confidentiality, ownership, control, and commercialization of genetic information.

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.
