About this webinar
The power of the Human Genome Project was its universality: One genome to represent all humankind. The next challenge is to call the variant in different populations and harness this to improve healthcare outcomes.
In this webinar, Professor Hauke Busch and Dr. Inken Wohlers from University of Lübeck share how their team assembled and annotated the first comprehensive North African (Egyptian) reference genome by combining long- and short-read whole-genome sequencing datasets.
The market leading sequencing service provider, Novogene, will also give an overview of how they collaborated with the team to build the sequencing strategies required to deliver the project.
Not only will this work contribute to the human genome project, it will be used in future studies to develop cancer tests specifically developed for the Egyptian population.
This webinar has been made possible with the kind support of our partner, Novogene. We encourage anyone interested in finding out more about the technology discussed in this webinar to visit the Novogene’s website.
