The 1,000 Genomes Project Consortium recently completed its pilot study, which involved sequencing 179 people at low coverage, deep-sequencing six people in two trios, and sequencing exons in 697 people. All told, the researchers found 15 million SNPs, 1 million short insertions and deletions, and 20,000 structural variants — which collectively account for 95 percent of all variation observed in humans. The team published its results in Nature and Science in October.
