And the reason appears to be simply that each new applied sciences permit very lengthy strings of base pairs to be learn without delay. In June 2000, the Human Genome Project and private company Celera Genomics introduced that first “draft” of the human genome. This was the result of years of labor that picked up the pace as people continued to make higher computers and algorithms for processing the genome. At the time, scientists have been surprised that of the over 3 billion individual “letters” of base pairs, they estimated people have simply 30,000 to 35,000 genes. Twenty-one years in the past, researchers announced the first “draft” of sequencing the complete human genome.
