BIOBASE Custom Curation efforts were acknowledged for their contribution to ground breaking research on an ancient human genome, published as the cover story in the most recent issue of Nature. The study described analysis of the genome extracted from 4000-year old human hair, to determine the lineage and physical characteristics of a Paleaeo-Eskimo human. BIOBASE-distributed HGMD Professional, a comprehensive database of human mutations linked to disease, was also used in the study. Among other traits, the study found that the individual may have had brown eyes, an A+ blood type, and a genetic risk of baldness, in addition to being adapted to cold climate.
