When DNA's double helical structure was discovered by Watson and Crick, scientists entered a race to sequence the human genome. Among the first techniques developed for DNA sequencing was the Maxam Gilbert method developed in 1973.
Ever wondered how that thread like DNA got into your computer? How do scientists analyze it and programmers make robust and sophisticated algorithms that can read the whole Human genome. If you want an answer to all your questions read on and find out how its done.
