One of the most significant accomplishments in the history of human health was achieved with the completion of the Human Genome Project, an international effort to identify, map, and sequence all of the genes of the human genome. How did this project begin? What were some of the key challenges that needed to be overcome? What is the legacy of the human genome project today?
