The Di Genoma Lab is up!!!

We are extremely happy to announce that we are kicking off the Di Genoma lab. We are eager to come back to our homeland and contribute to the development and application of omics technologies with a strong focus on unraveling the genomic secrets of our Chilean genetic heritage.

Current Projects

Our current funded projects are:

  • Advance toward a genomic reference for the Chilean population by building the first haplotype resolved genome of a Chilean individual.
  • Algorithms for hybrid metagenomic assembly.
  • Study complex mutational processes in prevalent Chilean cancers by means of multi-omics analysis.
