Lee Gilyeo Cancer and Diabetes Institute (LCDI) or Gacheon Medical School and Korean Bioinformation Center(KOBIC) of KRIBB jointly sequenced a full length Korean genome. This project was carried out by sharing tasks between the two teams. LCDI performed the sequencing experiment and KOBIC did the analysis of the genome. This is a model project in Korea showing the synergy of different research areas. This Korean genome (KJS) is the 4th personal genome announced after Craig Venter, James Watson, and a Chinese (YH) genomes. The genome belongs to Dr. Kim Seong-jin, the director of LCDI. The two teams will keep working on his genome to produce a high quality Asian reference genome that can be used as the basis for personalize medicine. The whole project, the Korean genome project, was also a part of National Reference Standards Center project for genomes.
The final outcome is the product of three organizations. LCDI, KOBIC, and NSRDI.
한국인 유전체 인류학적 위치 Korean Genome's Phylogenetic Mapping
Present humans are known to be originated from Africa 150,000 years ago. Using the whole genome information we located the phylogenetic branch of the Korean.

By comparing the 2003 Caucasian genome stored in NCBI, we found that KSJ genome covers 98.35% of the NCBI's.
단염기다형성(Single Nucleotide Polymorphism: SNP)
It is known that 99.99% of the DNA bases among people are the same. Remaining 0.1%, around 3 million bases, determine the genetic and phenotypic differences among people such as eye color, skin color, and susceptability to diseases. Among the variations found in a population, 90% of them are caused by one single base change. This is called SNP. Scientists think that it is possible to develop personalized medicine by researching on SNPs.
Genetics studies the inheritance of genetic traits and variations. Trait means the features such as eye color. Eye color is a phenotype while the genetic elements under it is the genetype. Variation is the genetic diversty of such genoetypes. Genetic variation can cause the phenotype change.
