Eric Green (1/2)

NHGRI Director Eric Green remembers the origin of the word "genomics" in the late 1980s. About this same time, Dr. Green decided to pursue his postdoctoral clinical training in laboratory medicine in the lab of Maynard Olson - a pioneer in the field of genomics and an architect of the Human Genome Project.
