October The GTEx Project: Its Legacy Lives On

Eric GreenThis month's The Genomics Landscape features stories about The GTEx Project's legacy, which lives on in its now publicly available atlas for studying human genomic variation and how it relates to gene expression. Also, best wishes to Dr. Jean McEwen, who recently retired from NHGRI's Division of Genomics and Society and management of the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (or ELSI) Research Program; a request for comments on the Genomic Data Sharing Policy; and changes to policies that guide the stewardship of NIH-funded clinical trials.

NHGRI oral history collection features influential genomics researchers 

Genomics History timelineA collection of oral histories released today by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) features candid conversations with pioneering scientists involved in the Human Genome Project and a rare discussion with all three institute directors since the organization was established in 1989. In each oral history, influential scientists offer extensive insight into science and medicine, as well as biographical details and commentary on the inner workings of NHGRI and its foundational initiatives that transformed the way people think about the human genome.
