What is FarGen?
The FarGen project aims to sequence whole genomes of the Faroese population. Together with existing health and genealogical records, such a comprehensive sequencing project can improve health knowledge, treatment and prevention services in the Faroese health system.
FarGen and Research
The first part of the project consists of sequencing genomes into a database, which will form the basis of the initial research phase. Combined with the Faroese genealogical and health records, such a comprehensive sequencing project can improve health knowledge,
FarGen and Health
Genomic knowledge combined with genealogical and health records will form a central part of future health services both in terms of treatment and prevention.
The completion of the international Human Genome Project in 2003, sparked an acceleration in genetic research. Along with great technological advances, this knowledge has opened up for new approaches to health research.
We welcomeyou to the conference FarGen Summit in the Faroe Islands 2013. The Conference will be held19 & 20September at Hotel Føroyar.
