Michael Hammer (according to an attendee): "village of origin can and will be done in the future as the database grows".
The 60th Annual ASHG meeting was held November 2-6 in Washington, D.C. A 23andMe employee comments and links to other coverage (see end of post) here. Video and slides from a 1000 Genomes Project tutorial here.
According to Luke Jostins:
at Biology of Genomes conference in May of next year; we’ll be putting out a large (~1100) sample dataset from around a dozen populations. These will be based on low-coverage whole-genome and high-coverage exome data on every sample, along with >2M genotypes from the Omni2.5 chip, to create a very high-quality set of data. Lots of work is going into putting together combined SNP, indel and CNV calls as nicely phased haplotypes. This dataset should be a massive boon to association studiesThis should also provide an additional public source of data for people undertaking projects like Polako's and Dienekes'.
