October 1, 2015 marked the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Human Genome Project. To commemorate this anniversary in a fashion that showcases the rich history of the Human Genome Project and the field of genomics over the last quarter-century, the NHGRI History of Genomics Program is hosting a seminar series entitled "A Quarter Century after the Human Genome Project's Launch: Lessons Beyond the Base Pairs." The program will feature Human Genome Project participants, who will be sharing their perspectives about the Project and how it affected their careers.
The series kicks off on December 3 with a panel discussion that will include the key NHGRI leadership during the Human Genome Project. Other speakers will follow in early 2016, as shown below. The lectures take place on Thursday afternoons from 2 to 3 p.m. in Lipsett Amphitheater in Building 10 on the main NIH campus; they will also be videorecorded and made available on our GenomeTV channel on YouTube. All seminars are free and open to the public.
