1000 Genomes Project and Beyond
24-26 June 2014
Churchill College, Cambridge, UK

This Wellcome Trust conference will focus on advances enabled by the 1000 Genomes Project, including the new directions in genetics and genomics that it has facilitated. It is the latest in the successful series of community meetings for the HapMap and 1000 Genomes Project, marking the end of the 1000 Genomes Project this summer.

Scientific sessions will include:
Patterns of genetic variation within and between populations
Management and processing of whole genome sequence data
Whole genome sequencing in complex and rare diseases
Human evolution
Functional analysis of variation
Genome sequencing: the past, present and future

Scientific programme committee
Richard Durbin, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK
Goncalo Abecasis, University of Michigan, USA
David Altshuler, Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, USA
Lisa Brooks, National Human Genome Research Institute, USA
Gil McVean, University of Oxford, UK

All the samples from the 1000 genomes are available as lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) and LCL derived DNA from the Coriell Cell Repository as part of the NHGRI Catalog. In addition Standard Population DNA Panels for the 1000 Genomes and HapMap projects are available at $1000 or less each.

A full listing of all the populations available can be see on the Coriell Cell lines and DNA page

Our 1000 Genomes Browser has been updated to contain Ensembl v73. This contains the majority of the Phase 1 Integrated release.

You can find our tutorial here.



Project Overview

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.
