Passend zu meiner Masterthesis „Reading Your Genome?“ (mehr dazu unter http://readingyourgenome.weebly.com/) startet das Projekt „Genom Austria“ im Jahr 2015 durch.
We are delighted to announce the launch yesterday of Genom Austria, the fourth member of the Global Network of Personal Genome Projects! This research study is a joint project of the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the Medical University of Vienna, and PersonalGenomes.org. Check out the team.
They launched having already sequenced the whole genomes of two volunteers and plan to enroll and sequence a total of 20 volunteers in the first year. With the addition of Genom Austria, the global network now has member sites at leading institutions in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Austria!
