The HUGO Pan-Asian Population Genomics Initiative is a collaborative international effort to systematically collect, analyse and understand the genetic diversity of the Asian populations. We also hope to unravel patterns in genomic diversity modulating phenotypic traits and thus contribute to the baseline data for understanding genomic diversity and healthcare interventions in this area.

We hope to make available the entire data and resources available to the larger worldwide scientific community on completion of the project. > more about us
