National Research Service Award Fellowships
Topic: To engage in research relevant to the Human Genome Project. Postdoctoral, senior postdoctoral, and minority predoctoral fellowships are available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents; research in ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) is not open to predoctoral students through this program.
Mapping, Sequencing, Analysis Technologies
Topic: Develop new or significantly improved technologies to facilitate and accelerate genome mapping, sequencing, and analysis. Resources produced will be used to further the study of diseases and other biological phenomena. (Supported by R01, R29, and P01 grants.)
Pilot Projects, PA-97-045
Topic: Pilot projects or feasibility studies to develop technologies as in PA-947-044. The purpose of this program is to encourage high-risk, high-potential technologies that are not yet developed fully enough to compete successfully for a standard R01 grant. (Supported by the exploratory R21 mechanism.)
Low-Cost, High-Accuracy DNA Sequencing Technologies
Topic: To stimulate research on next-generation technologies that have the potential to reduce significantly the cost of high-accuracy genomic DNA sequencing.

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.
