The Utah Genome Project is a large-scale, genome sequencing and analysis initiative to discover new disease-causing genes and to develop genetic diagnostics and precision therapies that will transform healthcare.

The Utah Genome Project is unique among genome initiatives because instead of studying unrelated individuals, the Utah Genome Project uncovers genetic signatures of disease and drug response in large families.

The project leverages the Utah Population Database, the world’s largest repository of genealogies, public health and medical records, housed at the University of Utah Health Sciences and Huntsman Cancer Institute.
