Human Genome Project

Human Genome Project

The Human Genome Project (HGP), managed by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), completed sequencing the human genome in 2003 and made it freely available to scientists and researchers. The mission of the HGP has expanded to seek understanding of functional components of the genome and role of the genome in health and disease.

J. Craig VenterCraig Venter is a biochemist-geneticist who received private funding to independently map and sequence human DNA. In 1998 Venter became president and CEO of Celera Genomics which initially raced against the HGP to be first to sequence the human genome. Venter developed a sequencing strategy of tagging and partially sequencing genes, “expressed sequence tags”. Collins and Venter began to cooperate around 2000 when U.S. President Bill Clinton and British Prime Minister Tony Blair jointly declared that genome information should be free to the public.

The NHGRI formed to manage the role of NIH in the HGP, funded research in related areas and together with the Division of Extramural Research (DER) set scientific priorities for HGP research.

The HGP is a useful reference that has accelerated the discovery of genes, disease-causing mutations and the development of diagnostic tests and therapeutics to treat diseases. The human genome is still not completely understood and current research aims to further understand how all the parts of the human genome, such as genes, gene regulatory elements and the structural organization of DNA and genes within the nucleus of the cell, work together in healthy or diseased states.
