The Human Genome Project, Then and Now

In this article, a researcher analyzed specific quotes from his own article, written in 1986, in which he discussed his optimistic predictions for the human genome project. In general, it seems that all of his goals for the project did come to pass, like a database and determining key genes involved in disease. It's interesting that we have even surpassed some of his predictions. (Although I wonder if they perhaps only chose his points which came to pass?)
