We are now entering the genome era of genetics, this phase being preceded by prior intellectual movements which gave the world: (1) Mendelian analysis, (2) DNA as the molecule of genetics, (3) the DNA-->RNA-->protein Central Dogma, (4) the molecular basis of gene expression and regulation, (5) the use of recombinant DNA procedures for gene isolation and manipulation, and (6) DNA sequencing and genome analysis. Soon, the human genetic information made possible by genome analysis will lead to subsequent logically following eras of predictive genetics and gene therapy.
