Starting with a basic introduction to the biology and techniques, it culminates in the full text of the historic genome sequence research paper. Along the way it describes the main players and events; presents a range of viewpoints on the impact of the work; outlines coverage of the media reception around the world; and offers an assessment of the ethical, legal and social implications of sequencing the human genome.
