Handling the Human Genome
Sunday 15th April 2001, 3PM
Royal Museum of Scotland Lecture Theatre
Now that the first draft of the human genome sequence is out, where do we go
from here? How will the data be refined and interpreted? Who will control it -
governments or commercial companies? And to what extent will the Internet and
other new software technologies be used to provide access to this data? Tim
Hubbard, head of Human Genome Analysis at the Sanger Centre which lead the UK's
human genome mapping effort, outlines the technical challenges and the
commercial considerations of this remarkable project.
