Seen and Heard: Rajiv McCoy

We’ve discovered millions of genetic variants that were previously not known across samples of thousands of individuals whose genomes have already been sequenced. We will have to wait until future work to learn more about their associations with disease, but a big focus of work now will be on trying to discover new genetic variations that were previously uncharacterized.”
