Foundational Research in Genomics
Foundational research, also called basic research, is actually anything but basic. The curiosity and creativity of scientists doing basic research lead to the knowledge base upon which applied research is built. Foundational research expands the horizons in the life and health sciences and improves the understanding of biological phenomena. At HudsonAlpha, foundational research includes studies of natural variation, gene regulation, principles of bioethics, computational biology, and much more. The knowledge gained from this research is fundamental to our goal of moving advancements in genomics to improve the human condition.
