Caption: Human genome project computers. Technician by the banks of computers which record the DNA sequencing work at the Sanger Centre, part of the human genome project. The human genome project aims to sequence all human genes. Genes are lengths of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) which perform specific tasks within an organsism. Human DNA has around 3 billion base pairs, divided into over 100,000 genes. When complete, the map of the human genome will give a greater understanding of genetic diseases and heredity, and provide many new avenues for drug design. The Sanger Centre, in Cambridge, England, was founded jointly by the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council.
