Genomic Data Infrastructure Launch Announcement
The European Genomic Data Infrastructure (GDI) project launched in Brussels on Thursday 17 November. The new project, coordinated by ELIXIR, involves a consortium of partners from 20 European countries and will facilitate a cross-border federated network of national genome collections for biomedical research and personalised medicine.
Building on the preparatory work of the 1+MG initiative and the Beyond 1 Million Genomes (B1MG) project, this federated network will facilitate better healthcare for citizens in Europe by providing researchers with access to over one million genomes and related clinical data.
