15 years ago, we sequenced the human genome. Now we can 3D map it.
It's a really important step to understanding the subtle ways genes actually work. In 2003, researchers sequenced the human genome for the first time, writing out all 3 billion of the DNA base pairs that dictate every aspect of our makeup. Now, a new team of researchers has figured out a way to create a 3D image of this valuable roadmap to human biology.
