Omni Future Almanac: Mapping the Genome
"As the turn of the century approaches, biologists will successfully transcribe all the genetic information in a healthy human cell for the first time."
Yep. At least as far as I understand things. There may be a more specific meaning of the above sentance the is off, but the Human Genome Project has mapped out the human gene, and many of the predictions of the Almanac about its effects (disease markers, e.g.) are now coming true.
Not quite as the century approaches (if I recall correctly), but close enough.
