Human genome is the set of 23 chromosomes pair with genetic information about 3 billion DNA base pairs. Human genome includes the coding and non-coding DNA. Human genome project started in the 1990 with the funding from NIH and Department of Energy. Researchers developed the hierarchical shotgun method to achieve the Human Genome Project. Till now Human Genome Project sequenced thousands of human genomes.
Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. The alternative for a researcher is âself-archivingâ (i.e., to publish in a traditional journal, where only subscribers have immediate access, but to make the article available on their personal and/or institutional Web sites (including so-called repositories or archives)), which is a practice allowed by many scholarly journals.
