Genomes, Neuroscience, and Neurology

Arch Neurol. 2001;58(11):1755-1757. doi:10.1001/archneur.58.11.1755

IN THE FEBRUARY 8 issues of Nature1 and Science,2 two groups reported the finishing of the first draft sequence of the human genome. Both groups, one an international public consortium, the other a publicly traded company, arrived at the draft sequence after much political strife and using somewhat different methodologies. The term draft sequence was chosen because gaps remain in the sequence, and sequence quality is not yet uniform.
