TIP/University of Wisconsin-Madison genomics experts

Today's public unveiling of the "working draft" of the human genone, along with a flurry of scholarly papers on its implications, marks another step in the evolution of this new science toward practical medical benefits.

The entire genome sequence, composed of about 3 billion units and as many as 40,000 genes, will be made available online. The world's two top scientific journals - Science and Nature - have also released special editions exploring where the science is taking us.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has an accomplished group of scientists working in the genomics field, including some who have ties to the federal Human Genome Project. UW-Madison is home to the Genome Center of Wisconsin, which serves as a focal point for genetic research in plants, animals and people.

Scientists here also are studying the social and ethical implications of unlocking the human genome. A strategic hiring effort at UW-Madison has resulted in the addition last year of two new experts in bioethics.
