We now know the molecular basis of more than 4.5 thousand diseases. All of the above is thanks to some brave and very talented organizers who managed to persuade the governments of several countries that spending $3 billion on sequencing human genome is a good thing. Now we need the Human Aginome Project to find out the mechanisms of aging and creating therapies to cure this deadly disease.
Our task is to study the experience of how the Human Genome Project was started and learn from this experience. If you have any information on the beginning of this large-scale project, the people and stories behind it, please, share.
