Research news

At a White House event on Monday June 26, Celera Genomics and the Human Genome Project announced that they had both completed first drafts of the human genome sequence. President Clinton described the sequence as "the most important, most wondrous map ever produced by humankind." He also revealed that Celera and the public consortium would work together to complete a "virtually error-free final draft" of the human genome within three years. Publications relating to the draft sequence are expected to appear in the journal Science later this year.
