Crowning glory of 2000!!! Cracking of the genetic code is top of tops

With the New Year elbowing out the old year it is time to reflect on the good old year and all the research work of 2000. And when we do that the first and foremost medical breakthrough, which comes to our mind, is the cracking of the genetic code. Almost all the top ten lists released by every one connected with the world of medicine features this remarkable feat in a prominent place and a majority of them are already tom tomming this as the work which would fetch the next Nobel prize.

Researchers at the National Institute of Health and at the Celera Genomics announced the completion of the genetic code on June 26th. This has been hailed by many as the holy grail of biology.

This new breakthrough will open new avenues in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases. Genetic mapping will also help doctors evolve more patient specific therapies.

Use of gene therapy to prevent restenosis following bypass surgery and as a treatment option for atrial stenosis is another major breakthrough of 2000. Other topics of interest are the use of stem cells to treat myocardial tissue damage.

In short, the study of human genes and the research in genetics has been the crowning glory of the year 2000 in the field of medicine.
