Ten years after the completion of the Human Genome Project, scientists continue to use information on the sequence and location of human genes to better understand wellness and disease. Some of the progress made so far was highlighted at a recent meeting of the National Advisory Council for Human Genome Research, which meets 3 times a year to advise federal agencies in the United States on genetics, genomic research, training, and programs related to the human genome initiative.
