Meeting Webcast

As the Human Genome Project approaches the finish line with the completion of the human sequence in 2003, the natural question to ask is: What's next for genomics?

To find an answer, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) gathered more than 150 of the world's leading genome researchers for a three-day conference titled: Beyond the Beginning: The Future of Genomics, from December 12-14, 2001, at the Airlie Conference Center in Warrenton, Va.

Because space was at a premium at the Airlie Conference Center, NHGRI could not accommodate everyone who wanted to attend. However, NHGRI videotaped the plenary sessions and the reports from each discussion breakout group, and has made them available on the Internet to make the discussion and planning available to all who want to contribute.

All videos are available in a playlist on GenomeTV
