TitleSequencing of candidate positively-selected regions in the human genome
Study TypePopulation Genomics
Abstract The project aims to investigate evolutionarily-interesting regions of the human genome. These often show signals of positive natural selection. Resequencing the same region of DNA in multiple humans provides a complete catalogue of the variants it contains and their distribution in the sample, and i .. [more]
Description About 3Mb of sequence from 57 regions (20-500kb each) of the human genome were enriched by NimbleGen custom oligo-tilling array pulldown and/or solution pulldown technology. The regions were then sequenced using paired-end reads (35bp, 54bp or 76bp) on the Illumina sequencing platform. SNPs were cal .. [more]
