The goals of HGP are:
• Identify all the approximately 20,000-25,000 genes in human DNA,
• Determine the sequences of the 3 billion chemical base pairs that make up human DNA,
• Store this information in databases,
• Improve tools for data analysis,
• Transfer related technologies to the private sector, and
• Address the ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) that may arise from the project.
