Caption: Dr Craig Venter, president of Celera Genomics. Celera Genomics, based in the USA, is a rival of the Human Genome Project. Both projects aim to find the DNA sequence of all human genes. They published working drafts of the sequence in February 2001. Venter is using a rapid method that fragments the DNA and sequences the fragments using supercomputers. This is a cruder but faster method than that used by the publicly-funded Human Genome Project. The complete human genome map will allow for improved drug design and greater understanding of genetic diseases. Photographed at the GENOME 2000 conference, Paris, France.
