A consortium of scientists from the Vietnam National University (VNU) in Hanoi recently unveiled full genome maps of three members of a Vietnamese family.

Published in the March edition of the Journal of Bioscience, the maps are part of a science project which began in 2013 by analysing the genome of a Vietnamese individual and expanded in 2014 to a mother, father, and their child. 
 

The research team: Associate Professor, Dr Le Sy Vinh (outermost) and his co-workers.

The team, including Associate Professor, Dr Le Sy Vinh and his co-workers, carried out their study with the assistance of computing systems provided by the VNU Technology Institute and the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST). 
They plan to work with hospitals across the country to develop a disease diagnosis system based on their findings and apply the system widely in the near future. 
The genome of a human being contains all of the genetic information that determines their biological development and characteristics. It helps scientists gain information about the development process of that individual and forecast their disease risk.
