Manhattan Project 2.0

In 1985, DOE began planning the Human Genome Initiative to develop research tools for molecular genetics…DOE considered the initiative an extension of its ongoing work in molecular biology-largely focused on detecting mutations and other biological effects of radiation and energy production-that would take advantage of research staff and instruments located at the national laboratories, which are funded by DOE, DOE held several public meetings to discuss the technical possibilities. The first of these was a workshop held in March 1986 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.” Page 12

Although the official date for the Human Genome Project is 1990, it actually began in 1988 with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health.4
