Scientists decipher the complete human genome & found new genes.

In February 2001, when researchers released the first set of the human genome sequence, it was a seismic event in the history of life sciences. However, it was not truly complete and 15 per cent of the genome was still to be deciphered. The most complicated chunk of DNA called fo...

Why Did It Take So Long To Decipher The Human Genome?

Scientists identified 3.055 billion base pairs (“letters”) of our DNA code as they made the data public. However, the wait has been over two decades since the first draft was released in 2001. Scientists have known for decades that genes were spread across 23 pairs of chromosomes...

What is the Human Genome Project?

The Human Genome Project that first realised its goal in 1988 aimed to decipher the human genome in three major ways:

  • Determining the order, or "sequence", of all the bases in our genome's DNA
  • Making maps that show the locations of genes for major sections of all our chromosome...
