To appreciate the magnitude, challenge, and implications of the HGP, it is important first to consider the foundation of science upon which it was based—the fields of classical, molecular, and human cal genetics is considered to have begun in the mids with the work of Austrian botanist, teacher, and Augustinian prelate Gregor Mendel, who defined the basic laws of genetics.

      The scientific and religious communities have been very interested in obtaining more information regarding neurotheology, how to approach this topic, and whether science . scientific activity.
