A major goal of genetics research is to characterize the contribution of variation in DNA sequence to differences in physical traits or disease susceptibility between individuals. Until recently, the discovery of genetic variants was the rate-limiting step in genetics research due to the prohibitive cost of obtaining DNA sequences of large numbers of individuals. Read more...
