The Human Genome Project international consortium today announced the publication of a draft sequence and initial analysis of the human genome – the genetic blueprint for a human being.

The draft sequence, which covers more than 90 percent of the human genome, represents the exact order of DNA’s four chemical bases – commonly abbreviated as A, T, C and G – along the human chromosomes. This DNA text influences everything from eye color and height, to aging and disease.
