Thank you for your answer!
But, aren't these mostly studies that are studying the proteins
encoded by microbial and plant genomes as opposed to the genome itself
(which was the goal of HAPMAP and the Human Genome project)? Is that

If so, I was thinking more of projects like those funded by the
National Human Genome Research Institute. For example,

The Cancer Genome Atlas 
The Knockout Mouse Project 

Are there any more major projects like these being conducted?

Hi! Just to clarify my answer.

Please look at the page where I got the list.

It is classified as the primary research projects. In this list I only
included those that are not yet completed.

I hope this clarifies my answer.

Thanks again.
