Human genomic research is a reality today. The field of human genomicsexamines human genes and their function. Genomic advances
"There is no gene for the human spirit." (Gattaca, 1997) The movie Gattaca (1997, Columbia Tristar Interactive) examines a near future in which genetic engineering decides what type of individuals humans will become. The movie addresses a modern day ethical question: should we tinker with the genetic makeup of humanity? It examines the disparity between genetically modified humans and naturally produced humans. Children "born of love" are deemed inferior and therefore are discriminated against by altered, superior humans. It is an interesting examination of an issue that is not truly science fiction. Human genomic research is a reality today. The field of Human Genomics examines human genes and their function. Genomic advances are bringing about a revolution in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of disease. Furthermore, it is stimulating the discovery of breakthrough healthcare products by revealing thousands of new biological targets for the development of drugs, and by providing scientists with innovative ways to design effective vaccines. This field was further advanced by The Human Genome Project, led in the United States by the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Energy. This project is a global research effort aimed at discovering the full sequence of bases in the human genome. Its main goals are to:

    The genomics industry, currently in its infancy, promises revolutionary developments in health care and nutrition, and presents tremendous opportunities for growth and investment. Genomics has the potential to permeate all facets of society on a truly global scale. In terms of human health and the pharmaceutical industry, genomics research helps identify and isolate causes for several genetic diseases, which greatly increases the target market for drug manufacturers. The ultimate goal of the genomics revolution is to understand the interplay between the double helix, health and the individual - and use cutting edge technology to study, design and build biologically important molecules that are economically and socially desirable. Sometimes confused with genetics, which is the study of how traits are passed down from one generation to the next, genomics seeks to analyse the proteins within DNA sequences responsible for creating said traits. The study of genomics is a part of the larger discipline of biotechnology. Biotechnology is the manipulation of biological organisms to make products that benefit human beings.

Welcome to the expanded electronic version of the Human Obesity Gene Map. The project to review annually all markers, genes and mutations associated or linked with obesity phenotypes was developed when I was on the faculty at Universite Laval in Quebec City, Canada. Drs Louis Perusse and Yvon C. Chagnon were the early collaborators on this project. The first version covered the evidence published until the fall of 1994 and was published in the Proceedings of the 7th International Congress on Obesity held in Toronto. Subsequently, yearly editions of the Human Obesity Gene Map have been published in Obesity Research, the official journal of the North American Association for the Study of Obesity. The 8th version of the map covers the literature until the end of October 2001.
Since my move to the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in 1999 to become its Executive Director, and the director of the Human Genomics Laboratory, we have planned to develop an e-version of the map which could be accessed through the PBRC web site. Dr Eric Snyder, a bioinformatics specialist and a faculty attached to the Human Genomics Laboratory, who is now a regular collaborator the Human Obesity Gene Map publication series, has accepted the challenge of developing this site.
The Obesity Gene Map web site was developed to address the need to include increasingly detailed information on the location and properties of an increasing number of obesity-related genes. Data from our published reviews was used as the starting point for constructing the Obesity Gene Map database. This information was then extensively cross-referenced internally, then linked to external resources such as OMIM, LocusLink and GenBank. We hope that you will find this site useful.

Dinosaurs were terminated during KT boundary, which is long long long time ago (65 million years ago). With very limited fossil record and the abrupt extinction of dinosaur, it is difficult and meaningless to study the "evolution" of dinosaur. More interesting is what trigger this event, which is a big unknown, some said asteroid, some said volcano, some said disease.
Human evolution is different, it is recent, there is fossil evidence and genetic evidence and we are not extinct yet =). Genetic evidence (mtDNA, HLA, Y chromosome, Alu sequence) provides us lots of insight about evolution. For example, just by estimate coalescence time and diversity about genetic systems, genetic evidence can tell us about time of human origin, which was around 2 million years ago, and location, which was Africa.
One interesting fact is that human evolution went through a bottleneck event around 75 thousand years ago. And there is evidence that during this bottleneck event, human population went from 100,000 to 10,000. With this short population expansion from a small population after such a recent bottleneck, no wonder we are so similar genetically. So what was going on during this bottleneck? It turns out there was a giant eruption from volcano Toba, in Indonesia. This event was 10,000 more powerful than St. Helen and decreased global temperature by as much as 15 degree Celsius!

IFT Food Expo Report
Poster Session: Fortification of Chocolate Beverages
Renee Mellican, senior research associate, and Haile Mehansho, principal scientist, gave a poster presentation describing how the researchers made beverages with and without ferrous fumarate and edible acids such as citric and malic acid. The acids lowered the beverage pH from 6.6 to 5.7, where it was still above the point of protein denaturation and precipitation. Color was evaluated by a Hunter colorimeter. A hemoglobin depletion/repletion assay in rats determined iron bioavailability. The two-week study showed that bioavailability of the iron-fortified beverages was the same as the standard, ferrous sulfate. Off color was prevented by the edible acids, and expert evaluation showed minimal effect of citric acid on taste. Contact Renee Mellican by e-mail at

Influence of the Human Genome Project on UNM Researchers
How will the Human Genome Project affect research and patient care? Here are some opinions from faculty at UNM HSC:
From Brian Hjelle, Associate Professor of Pathology:
"The human genome project will greatly improve our ability to identify the responses by the human body that are associated with a "healthy" response to microbes and viruses that leads to immunity and destruction of the invading bug, as well as the responses that are associated with bad outcomes, such as severe disease or death. These approaches are applicable to killer organisms that are massively important at the national and international scale such as HIV, tuberculosis and influenza, as well as those that disproportionately affect New Mexicans such as hantavirus and hepatitis."

Genomics Specialty Options
  • Cardiovascular/Genomics Clinical Nurse Specialist Oncology/Genomics Clinical Nurse Specialist Gerontology/Genomics Clinical Nurse Specialist
We are now offering three new dual specialty programs in Advanced Practice Nursing: Cardiovascular/Genomics Oncology/Genomics , and Gerontology/Genomics Our new Masters Degree (MSN) dual programs that link Genomics with these essential areas of practice will prepare advanced level experts to join multidisciplinary teams in a wide variety of health care settings. The Human Genome Project , an international quest to understand the genomes of humans and other organisms, will lead to unprecedented advances in science and medicine. Individual variations in the human genome can have a major impact on how an individual responds to disease, environmental insults, drugs, and other therapies. The growing momentum of genomics (the study of genes and their function) is revolutionizing our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of disease, including the complex interplay of genetic and environmental factors. Already oncology, cardiovascular and gerontological clinical nurse specialists are being called on to deliver therapies based on genomic technologies and to identify persons who might benefit from analysis of their genetic predisposition to specific disease. Discoveries in the genetic basis of diseases afford earlier and precise, non (or less) invasive diagnostic tests, novel therapeutics and the estimation of more accurate prognoses. As genomic technology crosses from the laboratory to the healthcare setting, the graduates of these three new dual programs will be on the cutting-edge of advanced practice nursing.

60. Genomics Research And Human Subjects: 3/99
In sum, the people whose genetic and clinical data will be essential for the nextphase of human genomics research need to be treated not merely as subjects
Issue of
March 17, 1999

Vantage Point: The human side of genomics research BY HENRY T. GREELY The ability to create vast amounts of genomic data and to correlate them with huge databases of medical records promises better understanding, and ultimately better treatment, of many common diseases. Fulfilling this promise will require more than dedicated researchers, fancy technologies or even money ­ it will require the cooperation of tens of thousands of people as research subjects. But the human side of this work remains dangerously underdeveloped. In the United States and in many other countries great strides have been made in ensuring that research is safe for human subjects, but thus far, too little attention has been paid to whether it is fair to those subjects. On that question, a social and legal consensus is lacking. Both research subjects and researchers desperately need one. In sum, the people whose genetic and clinical data will be essential for the next phase of human genomics research need to be treated not merely as "subjects" but more as (somewhat limited) partners. Researchers must recognize that these people have interests beyond safety; ethicists must recognize that, when well informed, they have the right to participate even in broadly defined research. The goal of this approach is not to prevent research but to prevent research subjects from feeling cheated, powerless, misled or betrayed.
