The Utah Genome Project is a large-scale, genome sequencing and analysis initiative to discover new disease-causing genes and develop genetic diagnostics and precision therapies. It is unique among genome initiatives because instead of studying unrelated individuals, it follows inherited mutations passed down through multiple generations, and through large familes, a powerful method for uncovering genetic signatures of disease and drug response. Utah Genome Project investigators leverage 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.
