CAPE TOWN - In a first for Africa, the entire human genome has been broken down and analysed on South African soil.

It comes 10 years after the International Genome Project was completed.

Shareefa Dalvie, a PhD student from the University of Cape Town recently won a competition to work on state-of-the-art sequencing equipment for her research proposal, which could help unlock the answers behind understanding the genetic factors of this disorder.
