Created to celebrate Science‘s Breakthrough of the Year for 2007, "Human Genetic Variation", this T-shirt is designed from an annotated gene sequence map of human chromosome 1.
 
The human genome is genome of Homo sapiens which is stored on 23 pairs of chromosomes, for a total of 46 individual chromosomes (22 autosomal pairs  + X+ Y) containing an estimated 20,000–25,000 genes. 
 
Completed in 2003, the Human Genome Project (HGP) was a 13-year project coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health.
Benefits Some current and potential applications of genome research include

  • Molecular medicine
  • Energy sources and environmental applications
  • Risk assessment
  • Bioarchaeology, anthropology, evolution, and human migration
  • DNA forensics (identification)
  • Agriculture, livestock breeding, and bioprocessing
