The complete sequence of all 20,000-25,000 human genes. That is, which chromosomes they are in and whereabouts the gene appears on that chromosome's piece of DNA.
Sequence of bases in a DNA molecule which codes for the sequence of amino acids in a protein. Each group of three bases, codes for an amino acid.
Just reflect ....
on the millions of base pairs that make up the human genome
on the efforts of scientists and technologists around the world deciphering the human genetic code
on the potential benefits that understanding the human genome will bring - and the issues that will need to be considered
Knowledge of the human genome brings with it enormous power, and also great responsibilities.
