Technology  


New physical techniques are proposed to sequence DNA.

The Human Genome Project began in 1990 as a massive 15-year undertaking to analyze or sequence human DNA, which will give a complete genetic map (genome). Rapid new physical sequencing methods are proposed in 1994, variously using lasers, photolithographic methods as developed for the semiconductor industry, and detection of single molecules.
