Human Genome Project
Human Genome Project Human Genome Project The Human Genome Project (HGP) is an international 13 year effort that began in October of 1990. The main objective of the project is to map the entire human DNA sequence. The project was planned to last 15 years, but rapid technological advances have moved the completion date to 2003. A rough draft of the human genome was completed in June 2000. Efforts are still underway to complete the finished high quality sequence. Many laboratories around the Unite

genomics When one suggests that a behavior is determined genetically, then one horribly oversimplifies the situation, and negates the importance of culture and free will in determining how a person behaves. One behavior that has gained large-scale acceptance as having a partial genetic cause is that of alcoholism. This genetic cause I expressed in terms of risk factor. It has often been noted that the children of alcoholics are more at risk of becoming addicted to alcohol than are other children

HGP In 1990 the Human Genome Project (HGP) was started, with the intent to better the human race, along with other species of animals. This project would be no small task and not one institution could do this by itself. Thus, the U.S. Department of Energy and National Institutes of Health was chosen to coordinate the plan of mapping the entire human genome. A genome is defined as the entire DNA in an organism, which includes its genes. The estimated completion date of 6this immense project was p

IT Usage in Banking Industry 1. The Usage of IT in The Banking Industry Information technology has dramatically changed the way banking is done over the last 15 years or so. The era of change banking in Canada began from the establishment of Interac\'s national Automated Teller Machine (ATM) network in 1986. National Debit Card network was introduced in 1994. First full service virtual bank came into being in 1997. Most recently voice recognition banking has begun to emerge in the Canadian busin

disney PHARMACOGENOMICS INTRODUCTION Pharmacogenomics is the study of how an individual\'s genetic inheritance affects the body\'s response to drugs. The term comes from the words pharmacology and genomics and is thus the intersection of pharmaceuticals and genetics. Pharmacogenomics holds the promise that drugs might one day be tailor-made for individuals and adapted to each person\'s own genetic makeup. Environment, diet, age, lifestyle, and state of health all can influence a person\'s respon
