The 1000 Genomes Project

The 1000 Genomes Project aims to provide a deep characterization of human genome sequence variation as a foundation for investigating the relationship between genotype and phenotype. This resource will aid our understanding of the role of genetic variation in human history, evolution and disease. This Nature Special accompanies the publication of the result of the pilot phase of the project, designed to develop and compare different strategies for genome-wide sequencing with high-throughput platforms. The site will be updated with companion papers as they become available.
