Contributory Info: Human Genome Project

The National Human Genome Research Institute describes the Human Genome Project (HGP) as, “the international, collaborative research program whose goal was the complete mapping and understanding of all the genes of human beings. All our genes together are known as our ‘genome.'”

The NHGRI continues, “The HGP was the natural culmination of the history of genetics research. In 1911, Alfred Sturtevant, then an undergraduate researcher in the laboratory of Thomas Hunt Morgan, realized that he could – and had to, in order to manage his data – map the locations of the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) genes whose mutations the Morgan laboratory was tracking over generations. Sturtevant’s very first gene map can be likened to the Wright brothers’ first flight at Kitty Hawk. In turn, the Human Genome Project can be compared to the Apollo program bringing humanity to the moon.”
