What is genetic variation?

What is genetic variation? via @yourgenome


Sept 8, 2016 - Huge data-sharing venture lays bare human genetic variation - "A landmark collection of DNA sequences includes the code for every gene in the genomes of more than 60,000 people1. An analysis of this dataset was published 18 August in Nature, but scientists have been using the database since its release nearly 2 years ago. The collection, called the Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC) browser, provides an unprecedented picture of genetic variation across the general…

Clipbirds activity from Berkeley bolsters student understanding of natural selection. Students use different size binder clips to represent the different size beaks of Darwin's finches.


RNA-Seq study identifies genetic variation in cellular stress - A new Cornell study examines how genetic differences among individuals impact cellular stress, a first step in understanding how this stress response relates to human diseases, such as diabetes. The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a part of the cell involved in producing proteins, folding them for proper ...
