We are building one of the largest genomic biobanks in Mexico through the genotyping of more than 6,000 individuals from diverse regions and ethnicities.

Our aims are:

  • Characterize the genetic composition of modern Mexicans
  • Disentangle the evolutionary forces that have shaped Mexican population history and diversity
  • Identify genetic markers correlated with infectious diseases and cardiometabolic traits
  • Establish a Roadmap for the analysis and use of large-scale genomic data from admixed populations
  • Build local capacity for technology development, big data analysis and bioinformatics training in Latin American genomics
