Insights from the DNA Sequence of the Human Genome
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) sponsored a look into the human genome sequence with a five-part lecture series, "Insights from the DNA Sequence of the Human Genome." on February 12, 2001 with a three-hour, kick-off symposium in Masur Auditorium in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center (Building 10) from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
