Completion of a draft of the human genome, Bill Clinton
For a few happy hours on the morning of June 26, 2000, Celera and the public consortium forgot their differences and revealed their results together.
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States, accompanied by Dr. Francis Collins and Dr. J. Craig Venter. Narrator: For a few happy hours on the morning of June 26, 2000, Celera and the public consortium forgot their differences and revealed their results together. President Bill Clinton: Today the world is joining us here in the East Room to celebrate the completion of the first survey of the entire human genome. Without a doubt, this is the most important, most wondrous map ever produced by humankind. Francis Collins: I think there was a great sense of relief that we made the story be the sequencing of the human genome. And the final sentence in my statement was, "I am happy that today the only race we are talking about is the human race."
