Pilot Phase of 1000 Genomes Project Identifies 8 Million New Genetic Variants

Researchers involved in the international 1000 Genomes Project have published data from the three studies that constituted the pilot
phase of the four-year initiative. The results, from the sequencing of
800 individuals, describe the location, allele frequency, and local
haplotype structure of approximately 15 million SNPs, 1 million short
insertions and deletions, and 20,000 structural variants.
