From the Large-Scale Genome Sequencing Program

Below are links to projects and scientific rationales that were discussed and at least partially approved over the history (more than 4 years ago) of the program. Please note that not every concept or white paper was approved in full, but the ideas included were considered significant enough to initiate specific projects. NHGRI will do its best to complete every approved project unless significant scientific (ie, technology changes make the project design obsolete), or practical  (e.g, no samples available; genome sequenced sooner elsewhere) reasons, until the sequencing program ends.
