Human genome

The human genome is the genome of Homo sapiens, which is stored on 23 chromosome pairs.


  • "The human genome, like the structure of blood, air or water, was discovered, not created. There is an endless amount of information on genes that begs for further discovery, and gene patents put up unacceptable barriers to the free exchange of ideas" [SCHWARTZ]; ANDREW POLLACK. [Judge Invalidates Human Gene Patent]. NYTimes. Retrieved on 2010-03-30, 2010.
