Question ID: 21085
I have 3 questions that I need answered in a hurry.

What is the standard tire set for new models of Peterbilt trucks.
There may only be one for all of these but I am interested models 362,
378, 379, 385, 387.

Who is the person that invented the mapping of the human Genome. What
was the date. What are his creditials? When do they antipate having
this completed.

How would I find out an arrest record of an individual in Tarrant
County, Tx if I didn't know the date of arrest. Several years ago.
Very minor offense.

I am trying to find the answers to these questions faster than my
friend. A contest and I have this little tool on my side that he is
unaware of called Google Answers.

Ok, I've got information on the Human Genome Project and the arrest
records.  I'm honestly not a car person and I'm not sure what you mean
by "tire set".  Do you mean the location of the wheels on the vehicle
or the tires that come on the truck when you first buy it or what?  I
did some searching and couldn't come up with a good answer on what a
"tire set" was so I want to ask you for clarification on that.

The first people to come up with the idea of mapping the human and
take strong action were Charles DeLisi and David Smith in 1985.  A
"working draft" of the sequence was finished in 2001.  You may have
read all the headlines at the time concerning it.  The project is
expected to be complete with a full sequence at the end of 2003.  See
1985, 2000 and 2001 with this timeline:

Small article on David Smith:

Introduction from the project website:

As for arrest searches, I've listed three services that should meet
your needs below.  I suggest reading their websites over well before
purchasing a report to make sure that it matches your specifications. - Click on "Background Search" and then look
under "Enhanced Background Criminal Search".

It looks like it will take 3-10 days to find the arrest information
depending what service you use.  There are other websites available as
well, so please let me know if you'd like some more options.

Please get back to me soon on the tire set and I hope the other two
answers have met your needs.  Please ask for clarification if they do
not.  Thanks for the opportunity to answer your quesiton!

Thank you for your work so far. When I say tire set, I mean the tires
that come on the truck when you buy it.

Thank You,

Dang, you must live on Google Answers...I think that was like 90
seconds to clarification...

I'll check into the tire set info, but I doubt I'll be able to get an
answer until tomorrow.  Thanks!

Does webadepts below comment meet your needs for the tire set?  What
additional information on the tires will you be requiring?  Thanks.

I recieved the following "official" answer from Peterbilt regarding
the standard tire sets:

"The base model tires are the same on all of the models you asked
Front: Bridgestone R227 295/75R22.5 14-ply
Rear: Bridgestone R227 295/75R22.5 14-ply"

Thanks for your help.

362 =  285/75R24.5
378 = 11R24.5
379 = 11R22.5 

385 = 11R22.5LP 

387 = 11R22.5LP

Thanks and good luck again

I can only hope this information will add to the background of this

The first human genome mapping took place in 1977 and mapped the EDA
gene to an X chromosome. I don't have more in depth information as to
exactly who lead the team, or what exact date. This article has some
basic details of the linking of the Genome Mapping project's
beginnings and Darwin.

The other background I found was information about Fred Sanger, two
time Nobel prize recipient who seems to have developed the process for
mapping individual genes to individual chromosomes. He isn't credited
anywhere with mapping a single gene to chromosome, but it is around
1977 which is the year the first three genes were mapped.

It would appear from this quote that they are giving Sanger credit for
the first viral mapping of a genome. Which would remove him from the
mapping of the human genome, but shows him as the first scientist to
map out "a" genome.

"Very simple organisms, such as tiny viruses, can be made with only a
few genes. Even though they are simple and small, each virus gene is
still hundreds of thousands of DNA bases long. The first complete
viral genome was worked out in 1977 in the United Kingdom by Dr Fred
Sanger, a double Nobel laureate in science. Since then, molecular
biologists have succeeded in reading the entire message of several
viral genomes. Recently it was announced that the genome of a common
yeast species has also been sequenced (ie, all the bases have been
read). The information to make a yeast cell is a staggering 15 million

I hope this information was helpful
