Here we report the Simons Genome Diversity Project data set: high quality genomes from 300 individuals from 142 diverse populations. [...] Key Result Our analysis reveals key features of the landscape of human genome variation, including that the rate of accumulation of mutations has accelerated by about 5% in non-Africans compared to Africans since divergence.Expand
