NYSCF Collaborates With Personalgenomes.org Using Cutting-Edge Genome Sequencing and Stem Cell Science to Understand Human Disease

This exciting new collaboration combines NYSCF's stem cell expertise with Personalgenomes.org's detalied genetic and medical data to create a new and powerful tool to research disease causes and traits. 

NYSCF scientists will make induced pluripotent stem cell lines from skin samples of participants in the Harvard Personal Genome Project (PGP), a member organization of Personalgenomes.org, creating a stem cell repository to study in combination with the PGP's detailed medical histories and genetic sequencing information.
