Another complete mapping of the genome May 25, 2006

Posted by Sacha in Genetics.

I was just catching up on my latest favorite finds in the blogosphere, Genetics Health and DNA Direct Talk.  They reported that on the 17th, scientists published the sequence of the last of the human chromosomes (chrom 1).  I think this is about the third time we've "completed" the genome, but it does get better every time. 

There is an excellent article titled "Human genome completed (again)" at news@nature.com that talks about the details and history in lay terms (unfortunately you need a subscription to view).  And something new I didn't know about, they have a link to a blog where you can discuss the article.  Pretty neat, although only 2 people have commented.
