    Thermo Fisher Scientific, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute partner on Applied Biosystems Axiom Africa Array
    Thermo Fisher Scientific (Waltham, MA) and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute announced the commercial launch of the Applied Biosystems Axiom Africa Array for medical and population genomics. The array provides capture of genome-wide variation in African populations, as well as Asian and European populations. Because populations from Africa have the greatest diversity in their genomes and the highest numbers of continental and population-specific genetic variants, there is a need to build new genetic tools to enable medical and population genetic research studies across the region in order to maximize opportunities for discovery, biological insights into disease, and to reconstruct population history of the region.
