MedGenome featured in Front Line Genomics Magazine ASHG 2017 issue – Article: Asia Gains Ground

October 18, 2017

2,000. That’s the number of genomes, Genome Asia 100K have successfully sequenced. The non-profit organisation is collaborating to sequence a total of 100,000 Asian individuals’ genomes, in a bid to help accelerate population specific medical advances and precision medicine.

Why? Well, according to the projects Scientific Chairman, Professor Stephan Schuster, “The more we undertake research of Asia; we discover that it is genetically way more diverse than expected. We want to contribute to this effort to determine which variants are genetic variants in the population.”
