All About The Human Genome Project (HGP)

Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man illustrationThe Human Genome Project (HGP) was one of the great feats of exploration in history – an inward voyage of discovery rather than an outward exploration of the planet or the cosmos; an international research effort to sequence and map all of the genes – together known as the genome – of members of our species, Homo sapiens. Completed in April 2003, the HGP gave us the ability to, for the first time, to read nature’s complete genetic blueprint for building a human being.
In this section, you will find access to a wealth of information on the history of the HGP, its progress, cast of characters and future.

Model Organisms
Integral to the HGP are similar efforts to understand the genomes of various organisms commonly used in biomedical research, such as mice, fruit flies and roundworms. Such organisms are called "model organisms," because they serve as research models for how the human organism behaves.
