The human genome project


The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) sequenced the first genome of a free-living organism, the bacterium Haemophilus influenzae, in 1995. This landmark project, led by TIGR scientist Robert Fleischmann, led to a series of genome sequencing projects.   The human genome project and  ENCODE were the pioneering projects.  The latest is the Genographic Project
Let's make that grade!
