Continental African Genome Database
At the Cobb Research Laboratory, we are endeavoring to develop a comprehensive and robust genomic database of continental Africans. This database will include human and oral microbiome samples from representatives able to trace their ancestry back to each of the ecological zones of the continent. We hope to have all of the countries of continental Africa represented in the database and that this database will be used to strengthen applied genomic analyses (e.g., pharmacogenomics, epigenomics, metabolomics) of relevance to peoples of continental African descent..
Stay tuned for more updates as we embark on this new endeavor!
