"The HapMap project has been a stellar example of how improved technologies and dedicated work on obtaining DNA samples from individuals in major populations allows us to provide more detailed resources for studies of human disease," said Richard Gibbs, Ph.D., director of the Human Genome Sequencing Center at the Baylor College of Medicine.
The International HapMap Consortium devoted considerable time and resources to try to ensure that the map was designed, developed and used in a manner that is sensitive to a wide range of ethical and social issues. In addition to getting informed consent from individual sample donors, a careful process of community engagement was conducted with each group approached to participate in the project.
