The vision for the future of genomics
presented here is broad and deep, and its realization will require the efforts of many. Continuation of the extensive collaboration
between scientists and between funding
sources that characterized the HGP will be
essential. Although the NHGRI intends to
participate in all the research areas discussed
here, it will need to focus its efforts to use its
finite resources as effectively as possible. Thus,
it will take a major role in some areas, actively
collaborate in others, and have only a supporting role in yet others. The NHGRI’s priorities
and areas of emphasis will also evolve as milestones are met and new opportunities arise.
