JGI Sequencing Facility Progressing

Later in 1998, the DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) Production Sequencing Facility is expected to occupy 56,600 square feet of leased laboratory and office space now being renovated in Walnut Creek, California.

JGI was formed Jan. 1, 1997, by the DOE Human Genome Program to integrate high-throughput DNA sequencing among its three major human genome laboratories. DOE will invest about $150 million in JGI over the next 5 years. [JGI: http://www.jgi.doe.gov]

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.
