Abstract

The complete human genome nucleotide sequence and technologies for assessing sequence variation on a genome-scale will prompt comprehensive studies of comparative genomic diversity in human populations across the globe. These studies, besides rejuvenating population genetics and our interest in how genetic variation is created and maintained, will provide the intellectual basis for understanding the genetic basis for complex diseases and traits.
