Healthcare Infrastructure

The FarGen infrastructure is intended for research. However, research is not an aim in itself, but rather the knowledge generated by the research, will be used in the healthcare services. According to the Human Genetics Research Act all results from research of Faroese genes must be recorded in the Registry of Diagnoses.  

This means that FarGen is also a healthcare infrastructure containing genetic data, which can serve as an instrument for diagnosing and treating disease, by determining the dosage and the choice of medication.
