The team aims to release the new resource sometime next year, with the hope that it will become as widely used as other institute databases.

The four-year project, which ended in 2010, collected DNA samples and lifestyle information from half a million people from the UK.

The institute will work with other HCA members to build a data-coordination platform for the initiative's researchers.

Researchers applied a SNP heritability model called LDAK to genetic data for a range of human traits, uncovering relatively high levels of variance explained by SNPs.

Researchers profiled the genotypes and phenotypes for more than 700 induced pluripotent stem cell lines, uncovering between-individual sources of variation. 

The computational method, called DeepCpG, is designed to tease out missing epigenetic marks and related DNA motifs in single-cell DNA methylation data.

A comparison of unstimulated and stimulated CD4+ T cells from young and old mice in two subspecies showed rising cell-to-cell expression variability with age.

EBI researchers find that, in mice, the genetics of one cage mate influences the other's health.

A UK research team performed single-cell RNA sequencing on epiblast cells to learn more about how gene expression directs organ formation.

While shotgun mass spec experiments are able to identify on the order of 13,000 proteins, an average of 75 percent of spectra generated are never identified.
