Billing it as the "first diploid human genome published," the J. Craig Venter Institute and PLoS Biology cordially invite you to listen to a teleconference you've already missed. But in the off chance you're seeing this before 10 AM Eastern, here's the deal: Venter and study leader Samuel Levy, along with Robert Strausberg, Steve Scherer, and PLoS Biology's Robert Shields, will be discussing findings from the sequence and analysis of the J. Craig genome. (If you want to dial in, try JCVI's media contact for details.) According to the release announcing the conference, "Many surprising secrets of the genome have been revealed in this latest analysis including a greater than expected number and type of genetic variation."
Oooh, surprising secrets. But as GTO will be busy watching people get tennis elbow, we'll have to read the paper when it comes out in PLoS Biology tomorrow.
