Common Infrastructure for National Cohorts in Europe, Canada, and Africa

Project description

An international clinical infrastructure for complex diseases

Human cohort studies and national healthcare initiatives are generating large biomolecular datasets, which researchers and clinicians require access to. The EU-funded CINECA project will develop a federated cloud-based infrastructure for making genomic and biomolecular data accessible. It has assembled a virtual cohort of 1.4 million individuals from population, longitudinal and disease studies such as the European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA), CanDIG, and H3Africa. The project will develop solutions both to the challenges of delivering transcontinental security requirements for data access, and to the ethical, legal, and societal commitments where data cannot move outside a legal jurisdiction. The project has already contributed to harmonising metadata, based on open global standards, which will drive variant and sample discovery in trans-continental virtual cohorts.
