From Ideas to Industries: Human Genome Project - SPARC
peter.suber's bookmarks 2018-06-21
"Scientists wanted to sequence and map all of the genes (known together as the genome) for the human species. The Human Genome Project was formed in order to facilitate understanding of the human genome, in hopes of applying this information to facilitate major scientific discoveries in the fields of medicine, biotechnology, and the life sciences. Traditionally, researchers have worked in labs behind closed doors, and findings were only shared in scientific journals, limiting their impact to only other academic scientists who had subscribed."
