As Adaptive Complexity writes, last week's issue of Nature  included the publication of  West-African and Han Chinese individual genomes.  The ability to sequence and analyze individual genomes for a reasonable price is a major technological advance of the past few years.  But, you can't learn a whole lot about populations from the study of individual genomes.  For that reason, I'm not sure you will ever see another individual genome published in a high-profile journal (unless it's a cancer genome).

Looking forward, keep an eye out for genome studies of entire multi-generational families.  That could provide some interesting information on the number of new mutations in each individual, and also find regions of the genome that don't necessarily follow the laws of mendelian genetics.
