||"Stefánsson [primary source], whose company maintains
genetic information on most Icelanders,
compared the whole-genome sequences of
78 trios of a mother, father and child. The
team searched for mutations in the child that
were not present in either parent and that must
therefore have arisen spontaneously in the egg,
sperm or embryo. [Primary source] reports the largest
such study of nuclear families so far."
||"Fathers passed on nearly four times as many new mutations as mothers: on average,
55 versus 14."
