The people of Kakopetria, which is situated in the Troodos mountain range, are participating in the island-wide campaign of the Biobank of the Center of Excellence, CY-Biobank, of the University of Cyprus. Of course, as part of our efforts to document the Cypriot DNA, we couldn’t leave out the rural areas! We would like to especially thank the Community Board of Kakopetria for briefing and mobilizing its constituents to participate in our voluntary DNA sampling and especially the Board’s president, Ioannis Iacovides! The excursion was an initiative of our Center of Excellence, in the context of its island-wide voluntary campaign for collecting Cypriot DNA samples. Stay tuned with our fb page, as more such excursions are about to follow! We invest in Biobanking, we invest in a healthier Cyprus!
