High quality genomes from 300 individuals across 142 diverse populations have come together to form the Simons Genome Diversity Project. This study of human genome variation has brought new evolutionary genomics insights, such as an unequal rate of accumulation of mutations and early separation of human ancestry.

The results of the Simons Genome Diversity Project were published in Nature on October, 13th and the EGA are glad to announce that the data is now fully available at the EGA by applying to the Data Access Committee.
