  1. 1. Jacob Price Block 4
  2. 2.  The Human Genome Project or HGP is the complete mapping and understanding of all the genes of human beings. All of our genes together are known as a “genome”
  3. 3.  There are about 20,500 genes in the human body. It was estimated that there were between 50,000 and 140,00 genes in the human genome The full sequence was completed in April of 2003
  4. 4.  It has given the world detailed information about the structure, organization and function of the complete set of human genes The information is a basic set of inheritable "instructions" for the development and function of a human being.
  5. 5.  It will help to map the entire genomes of several other organisms used in biological research It will also continue to demand a variety of new technologies to help with mapping the genomes of other organisms
  6. 6.  It is controversial because of the high cost and because that sequencing a lot of noncoding DNA should have low priority when there was limited funds Some say the ability to diagnose a genetic disorder before any treatment does more harm than good because it creates anxiety and frustration
