The First Complete Human Genome Sequence Has Been Published, Filling In The Gaps Of Previous Efforts.


• Last year, the work was made public for the first time.
• The full version of the consortium has 3.055 billion base pairs.
• About 2 million more genomic variants were discovered by the researchers.

Scientists published the first full human genome on Thursday, filling in gaps left by earlier attempts and promising fresh insights into disease-causing mutations and genetic variation among the world’s 7.9 billion people.

In 2003, Scientists Released What Was Hailed As The First Complete Sequence Of The Human Genome.

However, roughly 8% of it had not been properly deciphered, owing to highly repetitive portions of DNA that were difficult to integrate with the remainder. In a study published in the journal Science, a group of experts came up with a solution. Last year, the work was made public before it went through the normal peer review procedure.

In a statement, Eric Green, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the US National Institutes of Health, said, “Generating a truly complete human genome sequence represents an incredible scientific achievement, providing the first comprehensive view of our DNA blueprint.”

“This foundational information will boost the many ongoing attempts to comprehend all of the functional intricacies of the human genome, which will, in turn, empower genetic studies of human disease,” Green said. The final version of the collaboration has 3.055 billion base pairs,

which are the building blocks of chromosomes and genes, as well as 19,969 genes that code for proteins. The researchers discovered roughly 2,000 novel genes among these. Most of them are inactive, but 115 may still be.

The First Complete Human Genome Sequence Has Been Published

About 2 Million New Genetic Variations Were Discovered By The Researchers, 622 Of Which Were Found In Therapeutically Important Genes.

Telomere-to-Telomere (T2T) is a consortium called after the structures found at the ends of all chromosomes, a threadlike structure present in the nucleus of most live cells that convey genetic information in the form of genes.

“It was like putting on a new pair of glasses when the human genome sequence was finally completed. We’re one step closer to comprehending what it all means now that we can see everything clearly “Phillippy went on to say.

The new DNA sequences revealed new information about the region around the centromere, which grabs and pulls chromosomes apart as cells split to guarantee that each “daughter” cell obtains the correct amount of chromosomes.

In a release, Nicolas Altemose, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, stated, “Uncovering the whole sequence of these heretofore missing portions of the genome informed us so much about how they’re organized, which was totally unknown for many chromosomes.”
