The first map of genetic variation in Sweden

The first map of genetic variation in Sweden has now been presented. The results are based on whole genome DNA sequencing of 1 000 individuals, selected to cover the variation in the whole country. Thanks to this Sweden now has a national resource, which will facilitate research and diagnostics of genetic diseases. Project leader is Ulf Gyllensten, director of NGI Uppsala (Uppsala Genome Center), Uppsala University and the whole genome sequencing was performed at NGI Stockholm and NGI Uppsala (SNP&SEQ Technology Platform). You can read more about this new national resource at theĀ SciLifeLab website
