Precision Population Health: A Million Person Project
Beyond the Human Genome (BHG), a second Human Genome Project, will analyze the genomes/phenomes for one million people over 10 years. BGH’s mission is to employ this data-driven approach to make a life of health accessible to all people. We are looking for partners from across the healthcare spectrum.
