Human genomics is witnessing an ongoing paradigm shift from a single reference sequence to a pangenome form, yet populations of Asian ancestry remain underrepresented. In Dr. Shuhua Xu's latest Nature article 'A Pangenome Reference of 36 Chinese Populations', the Chinese Pangenome Consortium (CPC) attempted to uncover missing sequences and previously unidentified hidden variations within Chinese ethnic groups. CPC also aimed to establish a high-quality genome reference for comprehensive profiling gene diversity in Chinese as well as other Asian populations.
Join Dr. Shuhua Xu, a professor of human population genetics and the Principal Investigator of the Population Omics Group at Fudan University, as he introduces his team's new findings in their latest Nature article.
