Efficient, accurate and complete description of genomes of collections of individuals from populations is key to both practical and theoretical understanding of variation in phenotypes including disease risk. Publicly available human and model organism reference genomic sequences and their ever-growing rich annotation and recent advances sequencing technology provide an exciting opportunity for revolutionary advances in population genomics and the study of complex traits.
Broad goals of this project are
- To develop and validate resequencing technologies.
- To establish a sustainable high quality resequencing capacity.
- To provide preliminary results and analyses that reveal the potential of the emerging discipline of population genomics.
Current and Recent Projects
- DPGP release African survey of variation in 100+ genomes.
Information and access are under "DPGP2 - African Survey"
- DPGP releases the reference assemblies (Release 1.0) of the "50 Genomes".
More information and access are under "50 Genomes"
- DPGP releases a preview of 50 Genomes.
Information and access are under "50 Genomes & Beyond" look for "Release 0.5"
