The Human Genome Project was a project to map out all of the genes in a human, or the human genome that was completed in 2003. Although the Human Genome Project can give us many advances in science some possible problems have become known. Such problems as gene discrimination, mental shock and Gene Rich were featured in GATTACA and can cause major effects in the future that we may not see now. These effects can cause major unbalances and the scientists researching the Human Genome Project may not even realize the problems with the project and society until it’s too late. The effect can not only cost us money and human lives but could potentially create two separate human races.
