Microbial Genomics NewsMicrobial Genome Program Report
A color booklet on the DOE Microbial Genome Program (MGP), published in February 2000, is available in print and electronic formats. It includes program origins, targeted microbes and their potential uses, graphics, and abstracts of MGP research. The MGP, which DOE initiated in 1994 as a spinoff of its Human Genome Program, has been extremely successful. As of November, MGP researchers had completed the sequencing of 14 microbes, with around 35 more in progress. Future plans call for more detailed microbial analysis. At least 5 other governmental agencies have begun their own microbial programs, and about 170 microbial genomes are being sequenced and studied at present.
