Human Genome Project Achieves Technological Triumph

...owing them to "read" each gene. "Mapping the human genome has been compared with putting a man on the moon, but I believe it is more than that," said Dr. Michael Dexter, the director of the Wellcome Trust, which funded the British part of the Human Genome Project. "This is the outstanding achievement not on...

PCR emerging as a promising technique for Diagnosing Urinary Tuberculosis
