Human Genome Project
Publication Year: 2011
The Human Genome Project has already fueled the discovery of more than 1,800 disease genes. As a result of the Human Genome Project, today's researchers can find a gene suspected of causing an inherited disease in a matter of days, rather than the years it took before the genome sequence was in hand.
