Proofreading the human genome. (San Francisco Chronicles)

Perlegen Sciences was founded two years ago to use new DNA scanning tools to read each and every letter in 50 different genomes, and then to compare each of these genomes, letter by letter, with the reference copy produced by the Human Genome Project. Although the company claims to have found just about every SNP in creation, the scientific community hasn't the proof. Perlegen won't publish its SNP map. Instead it will try to recoup its investment by helping drug firms use these subtle genetic variations to determine why some people react badly to medicines -- or get sick in the first place.

Full story can be found in the San Francisco Chronicles, Oct 8, 2002.
