How to make sense of the new 1000 Genomes study
From genealogy to health, from medicine to culture, and from geography to education, a new research project from the UK and the US aims to help make sense out of the world.
The project, known as 1000Genomes, is the result of an international collaboration between researchers from the University of Oxford, the US National Institutes of Health, and the University at Buffalo, New York.
This is a BBC News story.
What is 1000Genome?
To understand the impact of 1000 Genome on the global health of our world, we need to understand what the research is trying to answer.
What do 1000 Genomics and 1000 Genotypes?1000 Genomes is a global effort to discover and understand the DNA of all people on Earth.
It involves the sequencing of a huge number of genomes from around the world, including DNA from more than 1.5 billion people.
These genomes contain millions of different variations that vary over time and can give us a much more detailed understanding of the way our genes work.
These are just a few of the ways that 1000 Genomic can help us understand human evolution.
It can also help us to understand other parts of our genomes, such as how genes interact with each other.
For example, DNA from people who have the disorder Huntington’s disease is more likely to be present in DNA from relatives than in non-related people.
The sequencing process also gives us a better idea of what parts of a genome are likely to show up more frequently in our genomes than we previously thought.
And the sequencing can also give us insights into how these genes interact.
For example, 1000 Gen Genomes can reveal how specific genes interact and how they can influence a disease, which in turn can help scientists understand the disease better.
What are the implications of 1000Genomic?
Scientists will need to look beyond their own genome to understand how genes and proteins interact to develop drugs, diagnostics, treatments, and therapies for diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
This may require new techniques to make genetic testing more accurate, or better able to distinguish between disease and healthy individuals.
This research is part of the wider project 1000 Genoms, which aims to understand the genome of all humans in the world using a more comprehensive dataset than is available today.
The 1000 Genom project is led by scientists from Oxford, Harvard University, and University at Albany, New Mexico.
