As scientists race to complete sequencing the human genome, researchers are pondering the next step: figuring out how all the pieces of the genetic puzzle work together. To help researchers make sense of this massive amount of information, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has launched a new research program to sequence the genome of the mouse, a staple of laboratory research.
