HuGENetEpidemiology is the basic science of public health genomics, concerned with understanding how human and pathogen genomic variation affects the distribution of disease in populations .

The Office of Public Health Genomics tracks epidemiologic study results in our weekly horizon scan and Advanced Molecular Detection Clips and deposits relevant publications in the Public Health Genomics Knowledge Base.

In addition, the Office  established the Human Genome Epidemiology Network (HuGENet) to help translate human genetic research findings into opportunities for preventive medicine and public health. For more than a decade, HuGENet has advanced a population perspective on human genetic variation in health and disease through data synthesis, interpretation, and dissemination.
