Have any companies profited from the Human Genome Diversity project?

    It doesn’t appear that any have quite yet.  It takes a while to do the research necessary to make a profit.  However, one example of a company that probably will in the near future is Sequana Therapeutics.  They are currently researching indigenous people of Tristan da Cunha, which have a high rate of hereditary asthma.  They hope to use these samples to isolate the asthma gene, which will definitely make them quite rich.
