Bigger human genome pool uncovers rarer variants
Thanks to powerful computational tools developed at Simon Fraser University, more than 100 scientists from around the world have genetically mapped the largest and most varied number of human genomes to date. The researchers used computational tools to discover many variants in those genomes. Their findings have just been published in the Nature journal article An integrated map of genetic variation from 1,092 human genomes now online.

Cellular landscaping: Predicting how, and how fast, cells will change
A NIST research team has developed a model for making quantifiable predictions of how a group of cells will react and change in response to a given environment or stimulus, and how quickly. The NIST model could have application in biomanufacturing and stem cell-based therapies, among other fields.

Spot the difference
Scientists at EMBL and colleagues present the first map of human genetic variation that combines everything from tiny changes in the genetic code to major alterations in our chromosomes, based on the genomes of 1,092 healthy people from Europe, the Americas and East Asia. Their results, published in Nature, open new approaches for research on the genetic causes of disease.
