    Irish Genome Mapped

    SCIENTISTS HAVE sequenced the complete genetic code of an Irish person for the first time. The 3.1 billion sub-units of DNA that comprise the human genome were mapped by a team from the Conway Institute at University College Dublin, using advanced sequencing technology.
    The landmark study, due to be published in the online journal Genome Biology, provides the first complete genetic picture of the Irish branch of the European ancestral tree.

    Interesting development and another piece of the jigsaw of European ancestry completed.

    Thanks for the update, this is the sort of thing that doesn't always reach mainstream RSS feeds.
