Scientists will start by sequencing the entire genome of each participant, and then for the next 25 years, are going to take regular measurements of sleep patterns, heart rate, gut bacteria, proteins that track organ health, blood samples, immune cell activity and more.

The aim of the nine-month pilot program - which is targeting 100,000 people within the next four years - is on ways to improve individual wellness based on each person's unique make-up.
