Sequence for Yourself

The Human Genome Project announced in the spring of 2001 that they had sequenced the entire human genome of three billion base pairs. How did they do it? Starting with intact chromosomes, this step-by-step activity shows how the DNA is cut into fragments, cloned, and replicated, and, finally, how the sequence is detected and assembled. From the NOVA: "Cracking the Code of Life" website.
