In May and June of 1996, the Center for Science, Technology, and Congress and the Scientific Freedom, Responsibility and Law Program,with partial funding from the Department of Energy, organized a series of seminars on the Human Genome Project (HGP) for Members of Congress and Congressional staff. The purpose of the seminars was to provide information to Congressional policy makers about the scientific progress of the HGP and important social and policy issues.
