  The Human Genome Project (HGP) was one of the great feats of exploration in history. Rather than an outward exploration of the planet or the cosmos, the HGP was an inward voyage of discovery led by an international team of researchers looking to sequence and map all of the genes -- together known as the genome -- of members of our species, Homo sapiens. Charles Murray, Human Diversity: The Biology of Gender, Race, and Class, Grand Central Publishing, , pp., $ In Human Diversity, Charles Murray sets out to demonstrate three things: (1) There are biological reasons why men and women behave differently.(2) Human populations have evolved so many genetic differences that different groups cannot be expected to think and behave. Human Genome Project, international scientific effort to map all of the genes on the 23 pairs of human chromosomes and, to sequence the billion DNA base pairs that make up the chromosomes (see nucleic acid).Begun in with the goal of enabling scientists to understand the basis of genetic diseases and to gain insight into human evolution, the project was largely completed in when. The Human Genome Diversity Project (hereafter referred to as the Diversity Project) was intended as a large-scale effort to sample and archive human genetic variation. It was publicly proposed by geneticists and evolutionary biologists in the summer of , as part of an effort to overcome a perceived Eurocentric bias in the Human Genome.

The Human Genome Project (HGP) has been hailed as an important milestone in the history of science, in the history of humanity even, and as a project whose completion would not only transform the Author: Hub Zwart.   The goal of the Human Genome Project (HGP), an international program that spanned from to was the complete mapping and understanding of all the genes of human beings – known as “human genome.” This has led to cutting edge research in medicine and pharma fields, but the base of over 95% of the genome samples was white Caucasian.

Joanna Radin, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences (Second Edition), Abstract. The Human Genome Diversity Project was intended to be a large-scale effort to sample and archive human genetic variation. It was initially proposed by geneticists and evolutionary biologists in the early s and was soon met by strong criticism. Evaluating Human Genetic Diversity discusses the potential uses of such collection, such as providing insight into human evolution and origins and serving as a springboard for important medical research. It also addresses issues of confidentiality and individual privacy for . Many more genome projects were launched in the s and before. 19 Most powerful is the Human Genome Project (HGP), aimed at the human genome, which had been presented to the world in June by science, commerce and politics. 20 Since the Diversity Project was announced by its initiators as a response to the HGP, I will elaborate on this.
