"History came full circle yesterday on a stage in Washington: James D. Watson, one of two scientists who unraveled the basic structure of DNA nearly half a century ago, beamed as his scientific descendants handed him a journal reporting details of the entire human genetic map.

Watson was honored as scientists announced the first exhaustive analyses of the human genome, the long strand of DNA that encodes the biology of the species."

""There's a lesson in humility in this," said Eric Lander, head of genome research at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Mass., and a leader in the Human Genome Project. "We have only twice as many genes as a fruit fly or a lowly nematode worm. What a comedown."

As several scientists noted yesterday, this finding actually makes their work more complicated, because they need to figure out how the tremendous complexity of the human body arises from so few genes."

"The DNA sequence of the Human Genome is now freely accessible to all, for public or private use, from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). The Center is a part of the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health. The web address for the Human Genome home page is:"

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
