1000 Genomes Project

JAMA. 2008;299(7):755. doi:10.1001/jama.299.7.755-d

An international research consortium plans to sequence the genomes of at least 1000 individuals from around the world to create a map of “biomedically relevant” human genetic variation with far greater resolution than is currently available. Major funding support for the project will be provided by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Hinxton, England; The Beijing Genomics Institute, in Shenzhen, China; and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) in Bethesda, Md.
