Method "[Researchers] conduct a study of genome-wide mutation rates by sequencing the entire genomes of 78 Icelandic parent-offspring trios at high coverage."
Comments "[Researchers] show that in [their] samples, with an average father's age of 29.7, the average de novo mutation rate is 1.20?×?10(-8) per nucleotide per generation."
