WiNGS is a federated and web-based platform tackling the complexity of analysing genome sequencing data. By storing sensitive information, including extensive phenotypic data and variant information, in client-hosted hubs, WiNGS optimises ICT requirements of whole genome sequencing interpretation. Finally, it allows anonymized analyses of pan-client data, while fully preserving the privacy of patient information.
WiNGS is based on both NGS-Logistics, the genomics data sharing platform established at KULeuven, and VariantDB, the interactive annotation and filtering platform developed at UAntwerp. The first manuscript of the platform can be downloaded here.
