We're All Mutants, According To New Gene Sequencing examine

"We're all mutants", that's the end of a study by 16 scientists from various countries who used a new method called direct sequencing to count individual differences among 10 million units (nucleotides) of DNA belong to each of two men living in the same Chinese village who shared an forebear 200 years ago.

The study was the work of Dr Yali Xue from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, UK, and colleagues, and was published online on 27 August in the journal Current Biology.
