Human Genome project leaves much of human variation unsampled

The first draft of the Human Genome, due to be published next year, represents only a fraction of the world’s human genetic diversity because the sample used for the project does not include adequate representation from sub-Saharan Africa. With more genetic variation occurring within human races, rather than between them, the project’s exclusion of individuals from the most variable human populations ignores worldwide genetic diversity and our evolutionary history.
