AbstractIn two randomly selected human genomes, 99.9% of the DNA sequence is identical. The remaining 0.1% of DNA contains sequence variations. The most common type of such variation is called a single-nucleotide polymorphism, or SNP. SNPs are highly abundant, stable, and distributed throughout the genome. These variations are associated with diversity in… (More)
