The international sequencing community holds an annual meeting in Bermuda, sponsored by the Wellcome Trust, DOE, and NIH to set standards for DNA sequence with respect to cost, quality, timeliness of submission, and level of annotation. For details, see "Policies on Release of Human Genomic Sequence Data".
Standards for JGI meet or exceed those for "Bermuda-quality."

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.
