Welcome to the iGE3 website !

iGE3, the Institute of Genetics and Genomics of Geneva, is a dynamic structure of the University of Geneva to promote research and teaching related to the human and other genomes. Our ambition is to understand life in the light of the structure, variation and function of genomes, and to contribute to the promotion of health based on the studies of the various human genomes.
