International HapMap Project, Providing over One Billion Genotypes in 2005

Worldwide Public-Private Support Enables Perlegen Sciences to Expand Its Contribution to International HapMap Project, Providing over One Billion Genotypes in 2005

BioBOOM Op/Ed: Welcome to the "Hitchhikers Guide to the Gene Galaxy" The mapping, the detail, the data...THE FUNCTION. Figuring out which genes encode which proteins and how the various proteins relate is the next "big thing". That effort is, well lets say the genome project was like the moon landing, a huge effort and success BUT this is like visiting all the planets. Approximately 30,000 genes in the human genome can encode anywhere from one to as many as a dozen proteins, some of which can be linked to diseases. Therefore the impact on drug development will be significant, almost revolutionary.
