Complete Genomics

Looks like we'll be seeing more human genome information in the near future. Complete Genomics Inc. plans to sequence 1000 genomes this year, and 20,000 in 2010. This research sounds similar to the Personal Genomes Project. It's a corporate effort, so individual researchers probably won't see the data ( visit NCBI if you want some free data ).
They plan to present the results of their initial analysis in February.

From the Newswire:

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Complete Genomics Inc., a newly launched, third-generation human genome sequencing company, today announced that it will release its sequencing data publically for the first time at the 10th annual Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) meeting to be held in Marco Island, Fla., from Feb. 4-7.

Dr. Clifford Reid, chairman, president and CEO of Complete Genomics, will review the analysis results during his presentation titled: "Complete Genomics: Revolutionizing Human Genome Sequencing" on Thursday, Feb. 5, at 9:10 p.m. in the Islands Ballroom at the Marco Island Marriott Resort and Spa in Marco Island, Fla.
