A highly annotated whole-genome sequence of a Korean individual

I was a part of a large group of people that characterized, in very fine detail, the genome of a Korean individual.  I think this paper will have a significant impact in many technical subtleties relevant to large sequencing projects.   Also, I think some of the population genetics and biomedical insights are remarkable.  Of course, the emerging importance of copy number variants (CNVs) in shaping genomes is another message underlying this paper.  It is also open access, so you can reach it from Nature’s website.
