Scientists at the National Institute of Health (NIH)-[The Human Genome Project] have achieved 99% of high quality sequence of the human genome with 99.99% accuracy (April 2003).

A working draft sequence of the human genome has already been done by scientists at The Human Genome Project at NIH and Celera Genomics (6/27/2001).

(The above information was adapted from the Human Genome Project Information page).

About 97% of the Human Genome does not produce any protein. The non-coding pieces of DNA are known as introns. Only 3% of the DNA (about 30,000 to 40,000 genes) will code for proteins. The coding pieces of DNA are known as exons, since they produce proteins.
