    Information is also available on the Institute's/Center's home 
page: http://oba.od.nih.gov/rdna/rdna.html, where an agenda and any 
additional information for the meeting will be posted when 
    OMB's ``Mandatory Information Requirements for Federal 
Assistance Program Announcements'' (45 FR 39592, June 11, 1980) 
requires a statement concerning the official government programs 
contained in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance. Normally 
NIH lists in its announcements the number and title of affected 
individual programs for the guidance of the public. Because the 
guidance in this notice covers virtually every NIH and Federal 
research program in which DNA recombinant molecule techniques could 
be used, it has been determined not to be cost effective or in the 
public interest to attempt to list these programs. Such a list would 
likely require several additional pages. In addition, NIH could not 
be certain that every Federal program would be included as many 
Federal agencies, as well as private organizations, both national 
and international, have elected to follow the NIH Guidelines. In 
lieu of the individual program listing, NIH invites readers to 
direct questions to the information address above about whether 
individual programs listed in the Catalog of Federal Domestic 
Assistance are affected.
