1000 Genomes Project Publishes Analysis of Completed Pilot Phase
Small genetic differences between individuals help explain why some people have a higher risk than others for developing illnesses such as diabetes or cancer. The 1000 Genomes Project, an international public-private consortium, published the most comprehensive map of these genetic variations estimated to contain approximately 95 percent of the genetic variation of any person on Earth. [Press release from the National Institutes of Health discussing online prepublication in Nature]
Whole Genome Sequencing of Japanese Individual Reveals Wealth of Undiscovered Genetic Variation
Researchers have uncovered hundreds of thousands of previously unknown variations in the human genome using new massively parallel sequencing technology.

CURRENT PUBLICATIONS (Ranked by Impact Factor of the Journal)

A Map of Human Genome Variation from Population-Scale Sequencing
The 1000 Genomes Project aims to provide a deep characterization of human genome sequence variation as a foundation for investigating the relationship between genotype and phenotype. Here, researchers present results of the pilot phase of the project, designed to develop and compare different strategies for genome-wide sequencing with high-throughput platforms. [Nature]
Whole-Genome Sequencing and Comprehensive Variant Analysis of a Japanese Individual Using Massively Parallel Sequencing
The analysis suggests that considerable variation remains undiscovered in the human genome and that whole-genome sequencing is an invaluable tool for obtaining a complete understanding of human genetic variation. [Nat Genet]
Cultured Cambial Meristematic Cells as a Source of Plant Natural Products

Effect of Oligonucleotide Length on the Assembly of DNA Materials: Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Layer-by-Layer DNA Films
Researchers applied molecular dynamics simulations in a synergistic effort with layer-by-layer experimental data to understand the effect of DNA strand length on the assembly of DNA films. The results indicate that short (less than 10 bases) and long (more than 30 bases) single-stranded DNAs do not exhibit optimal film growth, and this can be associated with the limited accessibility of the bases on the surface due to formation of self-protected interactions that prevent efficient hybridization.
