The "microplate DNA analyzer" features 96 channels etched in a radial pattern into a 4- or 6-in. glass wafer disk. Sample injection occurs near the disk edge, and separated DNA fragments are detected near the center. Separations of ds-DNA fragments are complete in <120 seconds, and DNA sequencing separations take only 20 minutes for 500bp [see Anal. Chem. 71(1), 566-573 (1999)].

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. See Timeline for more HGP history.
