The African Genome Variation Project

The African Genome Variation Project

The African Genome Variation Project aims to collect essential information about the structure of African genomes to provide a basic framework for genetic disease studies in Africa.

Rather than assuming that all human beings present and respond to disease and treatment in the same way, it is important that we understand how African genome structure differs from that in Europe in order to enable studies into the genetic basis of disease in Africa.

The Cambridge Centre for Global Health Research is funded by the Wellcome Trust. In close collaboration with The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, it supports researchers working in public health and tropical medicine to develop their careers, and foster interchange between institutions in the UK and those based in low- and middle-income countries.
