Caption: Human genome project. A robot arm loads DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) into plastic plates in an automated laboratory dedicated to mapping the human genome. The arm is attached to an array of small metal tubes; each tube matches a tiny well in the plastic plates below. Once a plate is loaded the arm moves the metal tube array to the next plate. The human genome project is an international project to map genetic landmarks on the three billion bases that make up human DNA. The completed genome map will make it much easier to identify and study the genes involved in many diseases that are currently incurable.
