HerediGene: Population Study is a large-scale collaboration between Intermountain Healthcare and deCODE genetics focused on discovering new connections between genetics and human disease.
Teams from the two organizations will analyze the complete DNA of 500,000 participants from Intermountain’s patient population to help medical professionals better understand the human genome and enhance their ability to prevent diseases such as breast cancer, colon cancer, and heart disease. The collaboration combines Intermountain’s internationally-recognized expertise in precision medicine and clinical care with deCODE’s world-class expertise in human population genetics. The project will be the largest and most comprehensive DNA mapping effort to date in the U.S. from a single population.
