CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — A lecture on the human genome, scheduled for Thursday at the University of Illinois, has been postponed because of Tuesday’s terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C.

Eric Green, chief of the Genome Technology Branch and director of the NIH Intramural Sequencing Center at the National Human Genome Research Institute at the National Institutes of Health, was to speak at 8 p.m. His talk at the Beckman Institute for Advance Science and Technology was to be the first event of a yearlong initiative of the UI Center for Advanced Study on the "The New Biology: Issues and Opportunities."

The event likely will be rescheduled, said Masumi Iriye, assistant director of the Center for Advanced Study.
