Population analysis of the Czech genome

A team of experts from the Institute of Applied Biotechnologies a.s. and the Institute of Molecular and Translational Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Palacký University in Olomouc for the first time in the Czech Republic performed a complete genome analysis for the entire human genome, which will contribute to the creation of the digital standard of the whole genome of the Czech Republic – CzGen.

The pilot phase of the project, a genome analysis of about 100 volunteers carried out in 2019, lead to the development of methodology, standardization and validation of procedures and protocols in accordance with the requirements of normative in vitro human diagnostics. In 2020 project ENIGMA will culminate into a complete analysis of approx. 1,000 genomes.
