help on question about human genome
Posted 12 March 2012 - 05:35 PM
In February 2001, Celera Corp. and the Human Genome Project (HGP) independently published the first "draft" of
the human genome sequence. How did the two sequences differ? Did the differences between them affect any of the
biological conclusions that were drawn? In April 2003, a "finished" sequence of the human genome was released by
HGP. In what ways did this differ from what had been released in 2001? In October 2004, another "finished" sequence of
the human genome was released and a paper was published in Nature. Then, in May 2006, another paper appeared in
Nature reporting on the "finished" DNA sequence of the last human chromosome (#1). How and why did these different
versions differ? Why it is important to have as accurate a sequence as possible? Do you expect to see yet more
"finished" versions of the reference human genome sequence in the coming years? When will it really be completely
Can someone possibly give me some hints on how to reply my final exam? I am really missing there!
Thanks you so much!
