In response to Sandra Porter's request, Larry Moran says it's not a problem that the human genome isn't quite complete. His blog post includes a graphic that shows the regions of the human genome that are not sequenced and most of them are highly repetitive. "We know what's in the repetitive sequence regions even though we don't know exactly how it is arranged," Moran writes. "The effort required to finish of the last bit is probably not as important as getting a final draft of other sequences."
