In 1997 Mutation Research will devote a new section to the union between genomics and mutation research. Managing Editor Anthony Carrano (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory) says Mutation Research Genomics will publish papers on the nature and consequences of genome variations in humans and appropriate model systems. Its focus will be on experimental approaches, instrumentation, and informatics technologies useful for measuring and characterizing genetic variation. The new section will be produced in traditional hard copy and online, initially in one volume of four issues. The September 1996 issue of Forum, also a part of Mutation Research, contains an editorial by John Wassom (Oak Ridge National Laboratory) giving background information on development of the field of mutation genomics.

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.
