Transcript of Human Genome Project

How many genes has the Human Genome Project sequenced/mapped?
It has sequenced up to 30,000 genes.
Who was involved in the Human Genome Project?
The Department of Energy
John Sulston
Francis S. Collins
Craig Venter
What are the goals of the Human Genome Project?
Identify all the genes that were estimated to be in the Human Genome
Determine the sequences of the chemical DNA bases
Store the information collected in data bases
Develop tools for data bases
Address the possible legal, social and ethical issues
What is being done with the information learned by the HGP?
By studying the similarities and differences between human genes and those of other organisms, researchers can discover the functions of particular genes and identify which genes are critical for life.

Human Genome Project

How many base pairs will be sequenced?
In the Human Genome Project there are 3.2 billion base pairs.
What other species, beside humans, were sequenced in the project?
Some of them were:
Fruit fly
What is a Genome?
When did the Human Genome Project start?
In 1990 when the US National Institutes of Health and the Department of Energy joined with international partners to figure out and find the correct sequence of all 3 billion bases of DNA.
By: Group 2A
A genome is an organism's complete set of DNA, including all of its genes.
