Mother of all microsatellites

Noah Rosenberg’s lab has put out the mother of all microsatellite papers, Population Structure in a Comprehensive Genomic Data Set on Human Microsatellite Variation. It seems to me that this is the culmination of all the work with microsatellite markers which has come out of his lab over the past decade, applying all sorts of [...]
