Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We may never have a complete understanding of the complex dynamics of the human organism, but we can and should know all our genes and begin to understand their role in the diseases that diminish our lives. A 15-year program has been projected and the specific, quantifiable goals in mapping and sequencing are outlined. Ethical, legal, and social implications are also discussed.
