Interactive Timeline: From Mendel to the Human Genome Project (1865-2003)

The Human Genome Project started in 1990 and was officially completed in 2003 nearly three years ahead of schedule, significantly under budget, and 50 years after the Watson and Crick publication describing the DNA molecule in 1953.

Highlights of the quest to map the human genome jump right out at you as you zip through this 19-stop timeline. The perfect primer for students and teachers.
