Papuan Genomes: whole genome sequencing

EGAS00001001247 Other

Study Description

The genomes of 25 individuals from Papua New Guinea was sequenced to high depth (30x) to address population genetic questions relating to the spread of humans outside of Africa and the peopling of Sahul (the continent of Greater Australia). The study design of this project was to sequence small numbers of genomes from several geographically distinct Papuan groups, focusing on the highland regions that are thought to have been more isolated, to enable comparisons between populations within Papua New Guinea and with Australian Aboriginal populations. Data from this project feed directly into on-going projects on the genetic history of Australia and also serve as a first look at the population genomics of the Papuan highlands.
