Summary

MUNICH-- Germany's research ministry stepped gingerly onto the human genome bandwagon in 1996 with a modest $23-million-a-year program for an initial 3-year period. The investment has resulted in some notable achievements, and several recent reports have recommended major increases in genome research funding. But the celebration of the results of the first phase of the German Human Genome Project (DHGP) at a meeting here last week was tempered by the fact that phase two of the DHGP officially began last month with an unchanged budget.
