New FinnGen animation released

With this new animation we hope to be able to explain all the essential characteristics of the FinnGen study in a way that is both entertaining and enlightening. This version of the animation has English subtitles.

The world’s most renowned expeditions set sail centuries ago. But the next journey of discovery starts in Finland. The FinnGen genetic research project covers the whole of Finland and will involve 500,000 Finns over the next few years. Through this research, we will soon be able to better understand the importance of our genes in determining our health compared to our environment or lifestyle choices. For the FinnGen research project to succeed we would like to invite you to join us on the journey!

Producer: FinnGen study, University of Helsinki
