Generations will be one of the largest DNA sequencing projects of its kind in the U.S. Volunteer participants who enroll in Generations will have their DNA analyzed more deeply than typical at-home genetic testing kits. The goal of this research is to learn more about human health and disease to find better ways to keep people healthy and provide treatments when they are sick. Researchers can search for changes in genes to protect against disease, target new drug development, and translate the results into better clinical care.
