Biobanks & Population genetics

Whilst we all share the same 22,000 human genes, we also carry small variations in these genes that could determine our predisposition to certain diseases or our response to drug therapies. Population genetics can be used to characterize complex diseases and associated pathophysiological states in respect with the genetic and environmental factors involved. This research requires access to large-scale biobanks containing genotypic, clinical, and environmental and life style information on individuals, along with corresponding biological specimens.
