Human Genome Variation meeting report

Check out p-ter's post at Gene Expression about a meeting report of "Human Genome Variation 2006" in Hong Kong which it looks like is a very exclusive meeting limited to 200 people. There are some interesting quotes that p-ter highlights in his post about gradients of allele frequencies in the US and differences in genetic patterns (LD and heterozygosity) between HapMap Caucasians and Ashkenazi subjects. Greg Cochran must be loving it.
I would also add that the meeting also highlighted the importance of non-coding regions as being responsible for pathologies, and for differing levels of gene expression.
