Research note: Don’t forget parents when celebrating a personal genome

As the massive international 1000 Genome project winds to a close in its efforts to define personal genomes, Yale researchers illustrate the importance of maternal and paternal contributions to an individual’s genetic makeup. The lab of Mark Gerstein, the Albert L. Williams Professor of Biomedical Informatics, uses this extensive catalog to build personal genomes for hundreds of individuals and precisely differentiate the functional effect of many of their variants.

The work was published in the April 18 issue of Nature Communications.
