The human genome has been studied tremendously in the recent years. Almost all of it has been mapped an identified but we are still missing hundreds of important DNA sequences. The goal: to map the entirety of the human genome. Scientists have been getting closer and closer to this with their most recent accomplishment; producing a complete DNA sequence of a single human chromosome. This process is similar to reconstructing a jigsaw puzzle without and clues or context on each piece. This time, scientists used a new computer system and started with the X chromosome allowing them to dive into newly uncovered sequences they have not seen before.
