PEGS: Personalized Environment and Genes Study


The Personalized Environment and Genes Study (PEGS) integrates genetic and environmental data to understand disease etiology, identify disease risk factors, and improve disease prevention.

This North Carolina-based cohort has extensive data, including both questionnaire-based and geospatial estimates of exposome-wide environmental exposures, whole genome sequencing, and linkage to electronic health records.

Participants are actively engaged and available for call-backs and add-on studies.
