Some copies of the July issue contained a sequencing gel photograph that was the victim of imprecise cropping, causing a frame shift that could result in an alteration of gene expression. We apologize for the mutation.

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. See Timeline for more HGP history.
