New DOE Awards for Collaboration with JGI

Following two competitions, DOE awarded grants for collaborations with JGI. The awards, announced in February and March, went to investigators at universities, industries, and national laboratories to provide additional technologies, expertise, and resources for human genome research and functional genomics.

  • Jack Barber (Immusol Inc.) and Gerald Rubin (University of California, Berkeley): Grants for research on human gene function via use of ribozymes and comparison with Drosophila, respectively.
  • Edwin Bradbury (LANL): Integrated approach to functional genomics (phage display library).
  • Ron Davis (Stanford University), Trevor Hawkins (University of Florida, Gainesville), and Skip Garner (UTSWMC): Grants for instruments and technologies to increase sequencing efficiency and reduce costs.
  • Eric Lander (Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research): Automated system to prepare DNA samples for sequencing and perform sequence-data analysis.
  • Ed Michaud and Tuan Vo-Dinh (Oak Ridge National Laboratory): Germline deletion complexes in embryonic stem cells for mapping gene function in mouse-human homology regions.
  • Lisa Stubbs (LLNL): Resource libraries (full-length mouse cDNAs).
  • F. William Studier, John Dunn, Joel Sussman, and Otto Ritter (Brookhaven National Laboratory): Systematic determination of archetypical structures for protein families.
  • David Torney (LANL): Annotation of coding DNA with protein domains.
  • Ed Uberbacher, Richard Mural, and Manesh Shah (ORNL): Computing infrastructure for large-scale functional annotation of DNA sequence.

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.
