Fishing at the gene (cDNA) library
Fishing in the DNA library
• What is the library composed of?
• How to catch a fragment
• A complete gene sequence
With the completion of the Human Genome Project, it is no longer necessary to sequence all the fragments of a gene. Using the human genome database, you can now discover the entire sequence based on only one gene fragment. Whereas in the past it may have taken years to sequence a gene, it now takes only months or weeks. The Human Genome Project has dramatically accelerated and simplified the process.
