In February 2001, Science and Nature published two papers that provided the first detailed look at the nearly complete sequence of the human genome. Science is pleased to present a special month-long series celebrating the 10th anniversary of that momentous achievement, including News features and brief essays that explore the impacts of the genomics revolution on scientists and society.

Visit this special section of the online issue of Science by clicking on the image above, or view and save a pdf copy of the two parts of the series that have been published so far.  Each pdf contains a collection of brief essays that should be assessible by most high school biology students.

About Eric Kessler

I am a high school biology teacher at Blue Valley North High School where I have taught freshman Biology and Honors Biology, Field Biology, Zoology, and AP Biology for the past 15 years. I am sponsor of the Environmental Club and our molecular modeling S.M.A.R.T. Team program. I am also the current treasurer of the Kansas Herpetological Society. Although I like most things biological, I have specific interests in the natural history of KS endemics (the outdoors) and things molecular. I am a pretty avid reader, I enjoy maintaining my website, and taking photographs. I plan on having students blogging and creating podcasts by the end of the year.
