White skin developed in Europe only as recently as 8,000 years ago ~ Based on 83 human samples from Holocene Europe as analyzed under the 1000 Genomes Project, we now know that for the majority of the time that humans have lived in Europe, the people had dark skin, and the genes signifying light skin only appear within the past 8,000 years. This recent and relatively quick process of natural selection suggests that the traits which spread rapidly were advantageous within that environment.

Study by Cherepanova et al. on the presence of epilepsy-related genetic variants in large exome datasets. The authors queried the Exome Variant Server and the 1000 Genomes Project for reported pathogenic variants in 19 genes known to cause epilepsy. The identified 7 variants present in these databases, including one SCN1A mutation previously reported as a de novo mutation in a patient with Severe Infantile Multifocal Epilepsy. In addition, three EFHC1 mutations appear at low frequency in…
2016-At GigaScience, researchers led by Complete Genomics' Brock Peters described how they used the company's Long-Fragment Read technology to generate sequencing and haplotype information for 184 genomes. The researchers also reported uncovering 2.6 million high-quality rare variants not present in either the Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms database or the 1000 Genomes Project Phase 3 data.
