The Variome is the whole set of genetic variations found in populations of species that have gone through a relatively short evolution change. For example, in the human population about 1 in every 1,200 nucleotide bases will differ. However, as the human species diverged only 10,000 years ago this variation rate is comparatively small in number. Variome in practice can be the sum of SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms). Variomics is the bioinformatic study of variome.
Additional recommended knowledge
There are a number of international project studying the human Variome that include the International HapMap Project and the the Human Variome Project. The International HapMap Project aims to identify and catalog genetic similarities and differences in human beings. The Human Variome Project (HVP) is an international initiative to collect and curate in a global repository, data on all human genetic variation.
