New Genetic Research Provides Most Significant Advance To Date in Genomic Reference Resources for Precision Medicine

“With these new reference data, genetic differences can be studied with unprecedented accuracy against the background of global genetic variation, which facilitates the biomedical evaluation of genetic variants carried by an individual,” said co-first author, Peter Ebert, PhD, a bioinformatics software engineer at the Institute for Medical Biometry and Bioinformatics at Heinrich Heine University.
