Abstract

The human genome project has provided a wealth of new information about the sequences of individual genes and their location on chromosomes. The completion of human genome project has the potential to revolutionize progress in advancing medical science. There is major interest in linking the human genome project to changes in gene and protein expression and function because such variations might be directly related to the development and/or progression of multiple human diseases. Indeed, the completion of the human genome project has already accelerated the identification of disease associated genetic aberrations.
