The sequence of the human genome has dramatically accelerated biomedical research. Here I explore its impact, in the decade since its publication, on our understanding of the biological functions encoded in the genome, on the biological basis of inherited diseases and cancer, and on the evolution and history of the human species. I also discuss the road ahead in fulfilling the promise of genomics for medicine. 
A decade’s perspective on DNA sequencing technology
The decade since the Human Genome Project ended has witnessed a remarkable sequencing technology explosion that has permitted a multitude of questions about the genome to be asked and answered, at
Human genetics and genomics a decade after the release of the draft sequence of the human genome
TLDR
The advent of high-throughput sequencing technologies has ushered in the 'personal genome sequencing' era for both normal and cancer genomes, and made possible large-scale genome sequencing studies such as the 1000 Genomes Project and the International Cancer Genome Consortium.
Charting a course for genomic medicine from base pairs to bedside
TLDR
A vision for the future of genomics research is articulated and the path towards an era of genomic medicine is described, as advances in genomics are harnessed to obtain robust foundational knowledge about the structure and function of the human genome.

A Decade after the First Full Human genome sequencing: when will We Understand our Own genome?
TLDR
This articles estimates how long will it take to achieve understanding the human genomes if the authors extrapolate from the previous decade (indeed, a century!) and the possible disruptive trends in science, technology and society that may accelerate the pace of progress dramatically.
Genome engineering tools for building cellular models of disease
TLDR
Recent advances in genome‐editing technologies and their application to human biology in disease modeling and beyond are reviewed and held great promise for acceleration of therapeutic translation.

Sequencing the human genome.
The human genome project is at the halfway point. The genomes of 11 microbes, Escherichia coli, and yeast are finished, yet the human genome is only 2 percent finished. The scale-up to finish by 2005
The New Genomics: Global Views of Biology
TLDR
Ten goals for the future that are related to a global view of biology are presented that will be the beginning of a new phase of research after a complete sequence of the human genome is available.
The Future of Genetic Studies of Complex Human Diseases
TLDR
In their Perspective, Risch and Merikangas propose that the power of the human genome project with association studies, a method for determining the basis of a genetic disease, can best accomplish the identification of the genetic basis of complex human diseases such as schizophrenia and diabetes.
Finishing the euchromatic sequence of the human genome
TLDR
The near-complete sequence reported here should serve as a firm foundation for biomedical research in the decades ahead and greatly improves the precision of biological analyses of the human genome including studies of gene number, birth and death.

On the sequencing of the human genome
TLDR
Computational analysis finds that a perfect tiling path with 2-fold coverage is sufficient to recover virtually the entirety of a genome assembly and concludes that the assembly primarily depended on the HGP's sequence-tagged site maps, BAC maps, and clone-based sequences.
