Large-Scale Functional Analysis of Yeast

RFA HG-96-001

The NIH National Center for HumanGenome Research (NCHGR) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have issued an RFA for research projects that will rapidly, comprehensively, and efficiently enrich the yeast sequence with biological information.Proposed projects should take advantage of the complete Saccharomyces cerevisiae sequence in new global approaches to studying biological phenomena important for human health and disease. These studies should be based on technologies that use and add value to the complete DNA sequence and are efficient, cost-effective, and scalable to the entire yeast genome.

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.
