NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and Yale University-led team has sifted through data from three 1000 Genomes Project pilot efforts to find a set of authentic loss-of-function variants in the human genome.

The work offers a peek at the types of genes typically affected by these changes and clues for distinguishing disease-related variants from those that are more harmless.
