Large-scale whole-genome sequencing of three diverse Asian populations in Singapore (Published in Cell Journal)

Under-representation of Asian genomes has hindered population and medical genetics research on Asians, leading to disparities in precision medicine. Over half of the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) found in Singapore Chinese, Malays and Indians are novel. This study is important to better understand complex traits and diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular and neurological conditions.
