Wired reports that the human genome map has been finished two years ahead of expectations. This has many benefits for science. The draft released three years ago has already helped the community.
"We put out the draft sequence as a way of getting it out to scientists as quickly as we could. It gives them something to work with and get going, but the aim was always to generate a reference sequence for the human genome," said Dr Jane Rogers, head of sequencing at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.
