Last week it was Science, with a swath of Ardipithecus papers. This week Nature has an above-average issue. I can't vouch for the quality of the papers (since I havent' finished them yet), but these look interesting (subscription required, unfortunately):

- Craig Venter and some distinguished colleagued offer "An agenda for personalized medicine.".

- Another team of outstanding researchers, including Francis Collins, David Goldstein, Leonid Kruglyak, Elaine Mardis, Andrew Clark, Evan Eichler, Greg Gibson, Trudy Mackay put up a review: "Finding the missing heritability of complex diseases."

- There is an interesting paper about "Gene therapy for red-green colour blindness in adult primates."

- "A genome-wide linkage and association scan reveals novel loci for autism."

- In advance online publication, "Origins and functional impact of copy number variation in the human genome."

This is going to keep me busy for a few hours.
