Hi Maus

Nice work. It's certainly ready for peer review.

My comments:

The history section seems a bit unbalanced with details of the start of the project, but little on recent years (which have been very interesting). It needs a proper explanation of what has been done and what still needs to be done.

It's not always clear when you are talking about sequencing and storing an individuals genome, an when you mean that of the species in general. There is a difference (eg. in the ethic section.)

It needs an introduction and a few sentences to link sections together. Some links to other h2g2 articles and the extensive bbc directory would be nice too.

An entry on a subject like this will probably attract lots of comments in PR and lots of people will suggest things to put in. Be prepared for a lot of editing.
