The 1000 Genomes Project Consortium set out to create a complete catalog of all common genetic variation across human populations. The consortium has sequenced 1,092 human genomes from 14 different populations thus far. Image courtesy of Lauren Solomon, Broad Communications

100K Genome Project - Wikipedia

The human genome contains 3 billion chemical nucleotide bases (A, C, T, and G). The average gene consists of 3,000 bases, but sizes vary greatly. The largest known human gene is dystrophin at 2.4 million bases. The total number of genes is estimated at 30,000—much lower than previous estimates of 80-140,000. Almost all (99.9%) nucleotide bases are exactly the same in all people. The functions are unknown for over 50% of discovered genes.

Ancient boundaries are the strongest

GENETIC BOUNDARIES: 'A pioneering study into [Britain's] genetic heritage ... shows that up to 40 per cent of [British] DNA may be from Germanic ancestors, and not the Vikings, thanks to the Anglo-Saxon migrations in 450-600AD. The project, carried out by Oxford University, is particularly interesting because it would seem that this genetic make-up bears out those old traditions and clichés about how [people] relate to each other. So the age-old rivalries between Devon and Cornwall – take…
