        NOVA | Sequence for Yourself

        In the spring of 2001, the Human Genome Project announced 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 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.

        This interactive activity requires Adobe Flash Player.
