Exactly 20 years after the successful completion of the “Human Genome Project,” an international group of researchers, the Human Genome Structural Variation Consortium (HGSVC), has now sequenced 32 human genomes at high resolution. The data fully captures the incidence of large-scale genomic features known as structural variants (SVs), as well as separately defining the sequences of both copies of the genome—one from the mother, the other from the father—found in each individual. The project included individuals from around the world, better capturing the genetic diversity of the human species. Read more
