Current and Former NHGRI Directors - Part II

In 2014 and 2015, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) filmed a panel discussion with former directors James Watson, Ph.D. and Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., and current director Eric Green, M.D., Ph.D. This invaluable footage animates the roots and growth of NHGRI, as well as the Human Genome Project, from the perspectives of three key figures. Part II of this footage features Drs. Collins and Green discussing NHGRI’s initiatives since the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, including the collaborative projects like the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements Project, the International HapMap Project and the 1,000 Genomes Project.
