Transcript of The Human Genome Project

-A five-year plan for Human Genome Project is published
-The Division of Intramural Research within the NCHGR is established.
-Francis S. Collins became the director of NCHGR.
-Human DNA sequencing begins with pilot studies at six universities in USA.
New plan to finish the human DNA sequence by 2003.
The Human Genome Project

-The Council for Human Genome Research meets for the first time in Bethesda, Maryland.
-James Watson resigns as Director of the Human Genome Project and Michael Gottesman takes his place.
"Starting the project"

First meeting about sequencing the human genome
-NIH director James
Wyngaarden organized a meeting to elaborate a plan for HGP.
-The office for Human Genome Research is created within NIH.
-James Watson is named the first director of the project.

-A memorandum is signed with the Department of Energy for further coordination.
