Johns Hopkins Scientists Contribute to 1st Complete Sequence of Human Genome

A group of Johns Hopkins University scientists has collaborated with more than 100 researchers around the world to assemble and analyze the first complete sequence of a human genome, two decades after the Human Genome Project produced the first draft.

The work is part of the Telomere to Telomere (T2T) consortium, led by researchers at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI); University of California, Santa Cruz; and University of Washington, Seattle.
