The 59th MDW Clinical Research Division CRD has successfully sequenced the entire human genome. Human genome sequencing was first completed in 2003 at a cost of approximately 3 Billion dollars. It took the combined effort of 20 laboratories across 7 countries working for 13 years to complete. Since then, remarkable advancements in both molecular techniques and computer technology have enabled smaller laboratories to bring this tool into the hands of more and more researchers.
