The Phase 3 publication, A global reference for human genetic variation and the Phase 3 Structural variation publication, An integrated map of structural variation in 2,504 human genomes are now available from Nature alongside a celebration of 25 years of the Human Genome Project
Both these papers are open access and should be free for everyone to read and download.

#ASHG2015 The 1000 Genomes Data Tutorial - 8th October, 7-9pm Baltimore Convention Centre, Room 327, Level 3
The 1000 Genomes Project is holding a tutorial giving and overview of the 1000 Genomes Project, how to access the data and explaining different use cases for the data.
This tutorial will be held in the Baltimore Convention Centre, Room 327, Level 3.
For more details about the program please see the tutorial page
No registration is needed.

In preparation for publication of the phase3 manuscript, we have moved all phase3 BAM files and fastq files from
The directory structure does not change under data/
Please note that the phase3 variant call VCF files under ftp://ftp.1000genomes.ebi.ac.uk/vol1/ftp/release/20130502 stay where they are.
The EMBL-EBI FTP site will be at reduced capacity between November 21st and December 8th due to EMBL-EBI wconsolidating its web infrastructure into a single data centre.
Please use the NCBI FTP site in preferance where possible during this period.

The 1000 Genomes Project is an international collaboration to produce an extensive public catalog of human genetic variation, including SNPs and structural variants, and their haplotype contexts. This resource will support genome-wide association studies and other medical research studies.
The genomes of about 2500 unidentified people from about 25 populations around the world will be sequenced using next-generation sequencing technologies. The results of the study will be freely and publicly accessible to researchers worldwide.
Further information about the project is available in the About tab. Information about downloading, browsing or using the 1000 Genomes data is available in the Data tab.
