From DNA to Genomes

The 50th anniversary of Watson and Crick's description of the helical structure of DNA has been the occasion for numerous celebrations of a discovery that contributed to the creation of "molecular medicine" and will lead to genomic medicine. The sequencing of the human genome is also being celebrated (again) in a fortuitously timed announcement that the genome is complete—more or less.

The past is prologue to significant research using the human genome to delve more deeply into important human diseases. It is far too early for very many studies of practical medical value to have come along; however, we're headed down that path. Stories in this edition of GNN highlight some of the progress so far.
