A Web portal enabling access to the data sets from the 1000 Genomes Project is now up and running.
The 1000 Genomes Project Mirror is a static webpage which links to FTP (File Transfer Protocol) access for a complete mirror of the 1000 Genomes Project.
From 2010 to 2011, the 1000 Genomes Project Consortium sequenced more than 2,500 human samples from 26 populations in order to provide a global reference and comprehensive resource on human genetic variation.
The data sets total about 260 TBs and consist of more than 250,000 publicly accessible files.
The 1000 Genomes Project Mirror is a complete copy of the data sets for use by Australian researchers.
RCC and QCIF supported the 1000 Genomes Project Mirror, and Research Data Services funded it.
