The Dr. Robert Cook-Deegan Human Genome Archive

Identifier: BRL-2001-0001


  • Most of the materials comprising the archive were obtained between the years 1986 and 1994. However, several of the documents are dated earlier .


48 boxes (44 standard archive boxes(ca. 20.85 linear feet) containing correspondence, government reports, background information, and oral histories from 1980 through the mid 1990's. ) : Organized materials are in archival boxes, archival folders, and all metal staples and paperclips have been removed. Audio and media materials are in archival boxes and also have been digitized for preservation. New accruals donated in 2013/2014 are in a mixture of archival boxes and standard banker boxes. All materials are in good shape.


In July, 2013 4 boxes of materials were donated to the original collection. In February, 2014, 5 additional boxes were donated to the original collection. Also, as part of the grant, the BRL undertook a systematic review of its own resources identifying nearly 10 boxes of materials that could potentially be added to the collection. These materials are in process and may be viewed on a case to case basis.
