Summary

EVRY, FRANCE-- France's Genoscope, a major gene sequencing center in this industrial suburb just outside Paris, plans to tackle between 5% and 10% of the human genome. Such productivity will put it in the top rank of the world's gene sequencing centers. However, it is on course for a showdown with genetic researchers elsewhere over data release if it follows the French research ministry's guidelines and does not release all of its sequence immediately.
