GP-write Consortium


To date, nearly 200 scientists, affiliated with more than 100 institutions/companies in 15 countries, expressed interest in participating in GP-write.

The Genome Project-write (GP-write) is an open, international research project led by a multi-disciplinary group of scientific leaders who will oversee a reduction in the costs of engineering and testing large genomes in cell lines by 1,000-fold within ten years. Additionally, GP-write is developing new technologies and an ethical framework for genome-scale engineering, as well as transformative medical applications. The overarching goal of such an effort is to understand the blueprint of life provided by the Human Genome Project (HGP-read).
