Excerpt: In 1986, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), convinced that its mission would be well served by a comprehensive picture of the human genome, took a bold and unilateral step by announcing its Human Genome Initiative-forerunner of the Human Genome Project.The immediate response was considerable skepticism about the technological capability to sequence the genome at a reasonable cost and even about the value of the result, if it could be obtained economically. Over a decade later, genome technologies and data are revolutionizing biology and providing a vital thrust to the increasingly broad scope of the biological sciences. Researchers have completed a rough draft of the human genome, with the high-quality finished version scheduled for completion by 2003. In addition to this major accomplishment, an array of newly completed model-organism genome sequences provides a useful tool for performing comparative studies that provide a better understanding of the human genome and a more comprehensive understanding of complex living systems.The expected impact on medicine and health care alone is inestimable.The growing knowledge base will also find a host of practical applications in many other critical areas, including those important to DOE missions.
