Volunteers from the general public working together with researchers to advance personal genomics.
We believe individuals from the general public have a vital role to play in making personal genomes useful. We are recruiting volunteers who are willing to share their genome sequence and many types of personal information with the research community and the general public, so that together we will be better able to advance our understanding of genetic and environmental contributions to human traits. Learn more about how to participate in the Personal Genome Project.
Project Overview. The PGP hopes to make personal genome sequencing more affordable, accessible, and useful for humankind. Learn more about our mission.
Want to participate? We aim to enroll 100,000 informed participants from the general public. Learn more about participation in the PGP and how you can get involved.
Meet our volunteers. Participants may volunteer to publicly share their DNA sequence and other personal information for research and education. Meet the "PGP-1K".
GET Conference. Hear from thought leaders working at the frontiers of personal genomics in Boston at the 2013 Genomes, Environments, and Traits Conference.
