All About The Human Genome Project (HGP)
Publication Year: 2010
Type: Federal resource, Internet Site
The Human Genome Project (HGP) was one of the great feats of exploration in history, an inward voyage of discovery rather than an outward exploration of the planet or the cosmos. An international research effort to sequence and map all of the genes - together known as the genome - of members of our species, Homo sapiens, the HGP was completed in April 2003. Now we can, for the first time, read nature’s complete genetic blueprint for building a human being.
