Boston Pathologists at the Forefront of Whole Human Genome Sequencing

1000 Genome Project publishes database of 800 whole human genome sequences More than 800 whole human genomes were sequenced and the data was recently made available in a public database by the 1000 Genomes Project. This development is a reminder to medical laboratories and pathologists that clinical use of whole human genome sequences is fast approaching. It is possible for clinical laboratory managers to access an article in the journal Nature that describes the work of the 1000 Genomes...
