As from Wiki (though teachers don't like it in most places?):
"The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international scientific research project with the goal of determining the sequence of nucleotide base pairs that make up human DNA, and of identifying and mapping all of the genes of the human genome from both a physical and a functional standpoint."
Feel free to ask if you would like an alternate definition.
Thanks and good luck,
