Global Genomics Alliance working to break down international data silos

Jan. 4, 2019

The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) has published a paper reviewing the diverse approaches being taken around the world to integrate genomics into healthcare and presenting a roadmap for sharing strategies, standards, and data internationally to accelerate implementation.

The paper, released Jan. 3 in the American Journal of Human Genetics, notes that while genomic sequencing has traditionally been a research tool, genomic data in the clinical setting will outpace research genomics within the next five years, with 60 million genomes expected to be sequenced by 2025. By 2030, China hopes to reach its goal of adding another 100 million genomes through the Chinese Precision Medicine Initiative.
