Caption: Craig Venter. Portrait of American geneticist Dr. Craig Venter, founder of The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) at Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA. He is standing in the DNA sequencing laboratory at TIGR where scientists monitor equipment used to analyse the structure of human genes. Here, rapid high-tech automation enables large numbers of genes to be sequenced at low cost. TIGR was founded in 1992 as the largest gene sequencing laboratory in the world. At TIGR, cDNA ESTs (Expressed Sequence Tags) are produced; these tags enable copies of human genes to be mapped. Mapping human genes will enable the development of gene therapies for inherited human diseases.
