11 12 CHAPTER 1 I N T RO D U C T I O N TO G E N E T I C S In 2001, the publicly funded Human Genome Project and a private genome project sponsored by Celera Corporation reported the first draft of the human genome sequence, covering about 96 percent of the gene-containing portion of the genome. In 2003, the remaining portion of the gene-coding sequence was completed and published. Efforts are now focused on sequencing the remaining noncoding regions of the genome. The five model organisms whose genomes were also sequenced by the Human Genome Project are Escherichia coli (a bacterium), Saccharomyces cerevisiae (a yeast), Caenorhabditis elegans (a roundworm), Drosophila melanogaster (the fruit fly), and Mus musculus (the mouse).

It continues to explain how traits are passed from generation to generation in a variety of organisms, including humans. little fly, lf FIGURE 1–5 A drawing of chromosome I (the X chromosome, meaning one of the sex-determining chromosomes) of D. melanogaster, showing the locations of various genes. Chromosomes can contain hundreds of genes. Genetic Variation At about the same time as the chromosome theory of inheritance was proposed, scientists began studying the inheritance of traits in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster.
