It was waaaaaaayyy back in Feburary, 2001, when the human genome sequence was first published in the journal Science. This month, Science is running a series of vignettes about the impact of this revolution on genetics, culture, society, policy, and everything else. Take some time and look them over.

Science’s most recent podcasts also deal heavily with human genomics. Check these ones out: Ten years of the human genome sequence; Releasing genomic data; Forensic genetics

Check back for specific posts on these vignettes, because there’s a lot of interesting stuff to discuss here…
