AbstractAbstract AbstractSummary PDFSupplementary Material
Population genetic and human genetic studies are being accelerated with genome technology and data sharing. Accordingly, in the past 10 years, several countries have initiated genetic research using genome technology and identified the genetic architecture of the ethnic groups living in the corresponding country or suggested the genetic foundation of a social phenomenon. Genetic research has been conducted from epidemiological studies that previously described the health or disease conditions in defined population. This perspective summarizes national genome projects conducted in the past 10 years and introduces case studies to utilize genomic data in genetic research.
Korean summary
지난 10년동안, 유전체 해독 기술의 발전과 유전학 데이터 공유로 인해 인간 유전학에 대한 연구가 활발히 진행되고 있다. 이에 따라, 세계의 몇몇 국가들이 국가 단위의 유전체 연구를 시작했으며, 의생물학 연구 및 해당 국가의 거주민의 유전적 조성을 연구하고 있다. 해당 리뷰에서는 국가 단위의 유전체 연구를 소개함으로써, 향후 우리나라에서 진행할 국가 단위의 유전체 연구에 대한 방향을 제시한다.
