2005 National DNA Day Online Chatroom Transcript

This is just one question from an archive of the National DNA Day Moderated Chat held in April 2005. The NHGRI Director and many genomics experts from across NHGRI took questions from students, teachers and the general public on topics ranging from basic genomic research, to the genetic basis of disease, to ethical questions about genetic privacy.

How many different scientists worked on the Human Genome Project?
     Geoff Spencer: Hi Annie. Great question. Over 1,000 scientists from 6 different countries worked on sequencing the human genome during a 13 year period.
Annie, Benjamin Logan High School
