NOTE: The Human Genome Landmarks poster is for educational purposes only, and is not intended to provide medical advice. Genes associated with the disorders and other traits listed on this poster were selected from the comprehensive database Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM), which designated the status of each of these as confirmed or provisional as of July 2000. The extent of knowledge about any specific gene or disorder varies widely.
Human Genome Project 1990–2003
The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome.
