The mapping of the gene structure done by the Human Genome Project sponsored by the Us Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health is scientific advancement of far reaching consequences for the future research and development of better medicines. At the launch of the project in 1990 the results were not anticipated at the scale which they actually turned out to be. The human genome is the collection of the DNA comprising of genes and chromosomes which determine the genetic coding of the body of a human being and in that way defining all characteristics that the body displays during its life time. Understanding and accurately pinpointing the human genome enables scientists to diagnose and treat diseases which were considered difficult about a decade ago. The genome also gives the ability to predict disease from the information of the genetic coding. This will lead to creation of health medicines that are tuned to the requirement of that disease foe a specific human body thereby ensuring accurate cure without side effects. These future health medicines will also mean commencing the preventive treatment of predicted or anticipated disease promising an early and definite restore to health. The health medicines will also have the ability to venture into more unpredictable arenas of the human mind and be used for treatment of behavioral disorders like addictions and abnormal reactions. The future belongs to these health medicines made possible by the mapping of the human genome in which specific and customized treatment and medical intervention for complicated diseases will be possible. The Human Genome Project has opened up vast possibilities in future research to better understand the human origin and migratory history. It will additionally give an insight into the process of evolution of the human body and the development of the human mind.
