At his blog, Georgia Institute of Technology's Jung Choi is sharing his exome data from 23andMe. Choi spares no detail, discussing the specifics about how his data arrived, as well as what all that information looked like when he unpackaged the once-encrypted files. And there was plenty of information:
Choi says that his data indicate that about 15 percent of his predicted exome variants are rare or unique. "As more exomes and whole genomes are sequenced, the proportion of 'unique' variants will diminish, but the 15 percent proportion of rare variants is unlikely to shift significantly," he adds.
Choi adds that he has made all of his 23andMe exome variant data publicly available for download [begins immediately], here.
