Understanding: This gives a baseline of the sequence of the genetic code. It does not tell what all the codes mean and there is still an incomplete understanding of how the codes translate to body structure and function. We can compare codes from different parts of the world and different races. Human migration can be traced with code. Stay tuned as there is much more to learn.
