The human genome at ten

For the military geek out there, it is a good time to wrap up on the work done "nearly a decade on from the completion of the draft sequence of the human genome".

A special "sum up" on the subject was published recently in the "bible of scientist" : Nature journal. Some articles are of general interest.


The draft human genome sequence, announced with much fanfare in 2000, promised great insights into human biology, medicine and evolution. In this special, Nature asks whether the sequence has delivered the insights that were anticipated, and what lessons have been learned from the first post-genome decade. Human genetics in 2010 looks infinitely more complex, and questions about how to make sense of the explosion in biological data are only becoming more pressing.
