The public consortium human genome reference sequence is explicitly a consensus sequence (actually stated as such in the 2001 Science paper) of five individual humans used to produce the plasmid clones. It was never intended to represent anything more than a generic feature reference of the genome.

The Celera human genome was mainly (but not exclusively) a single person's genomic sequence. J. Craig Venter's person genome was published as a diploid individual human genome build in 2007 and is available in GenBank.
