Exploring the Genomic Diversity of Africa

Mar 01, 2021 | Episode 70 | 32 mins

Although Africa is the continent with the highest amount of genetic diversity, it is underrepresented in global genomic databases. H3Africa is one of several initiatives, founded in 2010, that responded to the challenge of narrowing this gap. To discuss their efforts at H3Africa, we are joined by Zané Lombard Professor at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and Neil Hanchard at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX.
