The publication of the sequence of the human genome is the result of years of intense effort and debate within the scientific community. A special news section (p. 1177) describes how we arrived at this momentous occasion, the debates that led to the publication of two separate sequences, some of the key players, and what lies in store for the sequencing centers. A pullout timeline (p. 1195) hits the high points of the genome story so far.
