White skin developed in Europe only as recently as 8,000 years ago ~ Based on 83 human samples from Holocene Europe as analyzed under the 1000 Genomes Project, we now know that for the majority of the time that humans have lived in Europe, the people had dark skin, and the genes signifying light skin only appear within the past 8,000 years. This recent and relatively quick process of natural selection suggests that the traits which spread rapidly were advantageous within that environment.

CRISPR has been heralded as the biggest scientific breakthrough of 2015 across the board. This infographic will help you understand why.

CRISPR has been heralded as the biggest scientific breakthrough of 2015 across the board. This infographic will help you understand why. CRISPR is a genetic engineering project, and there are many ethical reasons why it should or should not be allowed.

The goal of the 1000 Genomes Project is to find most genetic variants that have frequencies of at least 1% in the populations studied.

Study by Cherepanova et al. on the presence of epilepsy-related genetic variants in large exome datasets. The authors queried the Exome Variant Server and the 1000 Genomes Project for reported pathogenic variants in 19 genes known to cause epilepsy. The identified 7 variants present in these databases, including one SCN1A mutation previously reported as a de novo mutation in a patient with Severe Infantile Multifocal Epilepsy. In addition, three EFHC1 mutations appear at low frequency in…

Project is Exemplar of New White House Big Data Initiative.

2015- After eight years of analysis, a consortium of scientists from around the world has completed an unprecedented project to delineate a wide spectrum of human genetic variation. For decades to come, this enormous catalog of data, known as the 1000 Genomes Project, will yield insights that will help researchers understand and treat a wide range of illness, including cancer and heart disease.
