An international effort to sequence the genomes of Asian populations in order to generate a comprehensive map of genetic diversity in the region is likely to graduate to microarray-powered genome-wide association studies in the future.

The Human Genome Organization's Pan-Asian Population Genomics Initiative, or PAPGI, is currently gathering whole-genome sequence data submitted by members from 16 countries, and aims to begin analyzing that data by this fall with plans to publish the findings sometime next year, according to steering committee member Jong Bhak.
