The Human Genome Project, established in 1990, is a worldwide joint project to detect and make a note of all the areas of every gene of the human race. (genome sequencing consortium. initial sequencing and analysis of the human genome. nature 409 (2001): 860–921) I
This project was stumbled upon with very basic of knowledge of what it could do. The human genome project can be used to eradicate disease by pen pointing the problem and genetically altering or manipulating a positive change.
