Two decades after scientists first announced a reading of the human genome

The original publication of 2001 apparently mapped only 92% of the human genome

this final 8% now includes numerous genes and much repeated DNA

The complete mapping of all nucleotides in our DNA, providing the first comprehensive view of the human DNA blueprint

It is critical for understanding the full spectrum of human genomic variation and for understanding the genetic contributions to certain diseases

when someone has their genome sequenced, we will be able to identify all of the variants in their DNA

And use that information to better guide their healthcare

It will ‘better support personalized medicine, population genome analysis and genome editing’.
