[…] nal variability has already been reported (, , ). These datasets are likely to underestimate human genetic variability due to the populations sampled (); in particular, all individuals from which the HipSci lines used were derived are described by the consortium as “white,” and most of them are labeled as being of English origin. The predominance of inter-individual differences is in line with the […]
