1993: New HGP Five-year Plan
Unexpectedly rapid progress toward the goals established in 1990 led the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Energy to establish a new set of goals for the Human Genome Project in 1993, two years ahead of schedule. The plan included new goals for creating detailed genetic and physical maps, developing efficient strategies for sequencing, and encouraging technology research.
