Mohamed Almarri | PhD Student

Almarri, Mohamed

Mohamed analyses genomic datasets generated from diverse human populations to understand their evolutionary history.

As we reach almost twenty years after the completion of the Human Genome Project, human genomics research is still not fully reflective of the diversity found globally. Understudied populations limit our knowledge of genetic variation, population history and past migrations. During my PhD, I aim to extend our understanding of global genetic diversity and its functional and medical implications both using samples already sequenced as part of existing projects, and through samples that have been collected by my personal collaboration with other groups.
