The Goal of the Human Genome Project is to obtain genetic mapping  information and to determine the complete sequence of all human DNA by the year of 2005. The project started in 1990 and 180 million dollars  are being spent on it annually. This adds up to a total of over 2 billion  dollars for the 15 year budget. Of this 2 billion dollars budgeted, 5% is  spent annually on the ethical, legal and social issues. This report  focused on some of these issues. Before discussion of the ethical, legal and social issues can be  successful, some background information is needed. For example, why is the goal of mapping the human genome important? Who is going to  benefit or at least be affected by this new information?  Dr. Francis Collins, the current director of the Human Genome Project  believes there are many benefits. Not surprisingly, Collins believes the  money being spent on this project is well worth it. Collins believes the

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
