The sequence of the 100-Mb genome of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, the first sequence of a multicellular organism, was published in 1998. The methodologies and strategies developed for the worm project, as well as the philosophy of continuous and immediate data release, have carried through to the Human Genome Project (HGP).
