Human Genome Project Honored by American Society of Human Genetics' Allan Award

October 2000

At its annual convention this year, the American Society of Human Genetics' Allan Award honored the hundreds of scientists who have been involved in the deciphering of the human genetic code. Speaking at the Allan Award session on Oct. 7 were Drs. Francis Collins and Eric Lander of the international Human Genome Project (HGP) consortium and Dr. Craig Venter of Celera Genomics.

The slides of Dr. Collins, director of the NHGRI, are provided. They list health conditions for which genes have been found by scientists who have used the "working draft" of the HGP's sequence data. Also listed are examples of the application of genomics to health care that should be available in the next decades.
