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.

The goal of the 1000 Genomes Project is to find most genetic variants that have frequencies of at least 1% in the populations studied.

Ion Torrent is claiming that they can get a human genome sequenced in 24 ours for $1000. The $1000 mark was the magic threshold for a long time, so it's a big deal if they've really done it.

The 1000 Genomes Project is an international public-private consortium to build the most detailed map of human genetic variation to date. Disease researchers will use this catalog, which is being developed over the next two years, to study the contribution of genetic variation to illness (via Genome Institute at Washington University).
