Annotating the Human Genome
Since the Human Genome Sequence was published 10 years ago, scientists have been trying to understand what is in that genome. This month, some developments have been published. Researcher Job Dekker, a professor at UMASS Medical in Worcester is among those involved in the ENCODE project or -- "ENCOyclopedia of DNA Elements." Dekker told New England Public Radio's Jill Kaufman his part in the collaboration of scientists is relatively small but one that highlights how complex the human genome is.
