23andMe Populations Collaborations Program
At 23andMe, we want our database and our genomic studies to reflect the rich genetic diversity of all people. As part of that effort, 23andMe’s Populations Collaborations Program offers qualified researchers genotyping of samples from underrepresented and understudied populations around the world at no cost to the researcher or participants. This program aims to expand and improve 23andMe’s Reference Data Panel while also furthering important genetic research. By improving the genetic diversity of our research database and including data from underrepresented populations, we hope more people globally will benefit from genetics research.
If you are a researcher and you seek to genotype a population that is underrepresented in genetic studies, we’d like to collaborate with you!
