Genome at 10: The project few wanted

BACK in 1984, Robert Sinsheimer had a problem. As chancellor of the University of California, Santa Cruz, he had raised $36 million towards the $70 million needed for a new telescope, but a new donor had suddenly stepped in and provided the whole $70 million. An enviable problem, perhaps, but if Sinsheimer couldn’t persuade the existing donors to support another big science project, the university would have to return the $36 million.
