Gencove, a Refactor portfolio company, in conjunction with the Banaras Hindu University in Varanasi, India, is conducting an anonymous, population-wide genomics study of the Zoroastrian population and is recruiting Zoroastrian participants in the US, India, and the Middle East.
The goal is to learn more about Zoroastrian ancestry, genealogy, and disease risk in order to ultimately help create new diagnostics and treatments for all populations, including Zoroastrians.
If you are a Parsi Zoroastrian or Iranian Zoroastrian, Gencove will send sample kits for free to those individuals who opt into the study. Kits will include a mouth swab test to capture saliva. If you qualify, please fill out the Google Form below, and Gencove will mail you a kit in the coming weeks.
Thank you in advance for your support.
