The results from the SweGen project are published today. Within the SweGen project, large-scale DNA sequencing methods were used to analyse the whole genome of 1000 individuals from different parts of the country.
In total 33 million genetic variants were detected, of which 10 million are novel and not reported in current databases. The variant frequency data has been made available for researchers and clinical professionals from http://swefreq.nbis.se.
The study was led by Ulf Gyllensten (Uppsala University) and the findings published in the European Journal of Human Genetics.
It is now possible to apply for access to individual-level data from the SweGen project for specific research projects. Please contact the SciLifeLab Data Office (dataoffice@localhost) for more information about this.
