Complete sequence of human genome published in landmark achievement

Dr. Karen Miga, a co-lead of the T2T consortium and professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, told Medical News Today, “The availability of a complete genome sequence will advance our understanding of the most difficult-to-sequence and repeat-rich parts of the human genome.”

“In the future, when someone has their genome sequenced, researchers and clinicians will be able to identify all of the variants in their DNA and use that information to better guide their healthcare. Knowing the complete sequence of the human genome will provide a comprehensive framework for scientists to study human genomic variation, disease, and evolution.”
