  • How Our Genes Change Our Lives–and

    The task of reading a full human genome—with all its 3 billion base pairs—was first accomplished back at the turn of the century, through the monumental enterprise known as the Human Genome Project (HGP). In terms of the brass tacks, the HGP itself took over a decade, and cost nearly $3 billion dollars. Since that time, advances in technology have made gene sequencing vastly cheaper and less time consuming (reading a genome now takes less than a day, and costs less than $1,000). As a result, gene sequencing has become very commonplace, and thus the amount of data we have regarding our genome has grown enormously. Still, while the HGP was an incredible accomplishment, and the advances we have made since then are nothing short of remarkable, the secrets behind DNA have not been unlocked nearly as quickly as we might have hoped, or expected.
