The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) today gave its provisional go-ahead to the Cow Genome Project, a landmark sequencing effort expected to generate widespread benefits for biology and agriculture.

In a declaration of intent, the NHGRI and the state of Texas have indicated their plan to support the efforts of the Baylor College of Medicine and Texas A&M University to sequence the bovine genome. The entire project will cost $50 million. The genome institute will put up half the money if the remaining $25 million can be raised from other sources, said NHGRI Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D. Sequencing would start in September 2003 if the additional funds can be raised.
