An international consortium, including the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center, sequenced and analyzed the genomes of more than 2,500 individuals from 26 populations and mapped more than 68,000 structural variants in the individuals. Dr. Fuli Yu, assistant professor with BCM-HGSC, discusses the newly released report from the final phase of the 1000 Genomes Project and the resulting technologies -- including those pioneered at HGSC -- that have improved the identification of structural variants.
