Dovichi Wins ACS Award

Norman J. Dovichi (University of Alberta, Canada) recently received the American Chemical Society Award in Chemical Instrumentation, sponsored by the Dow Chemical Company Foundation. Dovichi was recognized for his research in ultrasensitive instrumentation for analytical chemistry, combining laser spectroscopy with high-performance chemical separation techniques. His recent research into DNA sequencing by capillary electrophoresis was cited as especially noteworthy. Dovichi's research is supported by the DOE Human Genome Program.

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.
