Human Genome Project Information

Completed in 2003, the Human Genome Project (HGP) was a 13-year project coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Institutes of Health. During the early years of the HGP, the Wellcome Trust (U.K.) became a major partner; additional contributions came from Japan, France, Germany, China, and others. Project goals were to identify all the approximately 20,500 genes in human DNA,determine the sequences of the 3 billion chemical base pairs that make up human DNA,store this information in databases,improve tools for data analysis,transfer related technologies to the private sector, andaddress the ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) that may arise from the project.

Human egg makes accidental debut on camera - being-human - 11 June 2008 Look closely: this is history in the making. These are the clearest pictures ever taken of what is the starting point of every human life: ovulation occurring inside a woman's body. See the photos "The release of the oocyte from the ovary is a crucial event in human reproduction," says Jacques Donnez at the Catholic University of Louvain (UCL) in Brussels, Belgium. "These pictures are clearly important to better understand the mechanism." Observing ovulation in humans is extremely rare, and previous images have been fuzzy.
