Epidemiology is the basic science of public health. Human genome epidemiology (HuGE) is concerned with understanding how human and pathogen genomic variation affects the distribution of disease in populations.

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