Workshop: Research data repositories and tools for human genomics data sharing



The European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) is a repository for all sequence and genotype experiment types, including case-control, population, and family studies. The EGA will serve as a permanent archive that will archive several levels of data, including the raw data (which could, for example, be re-analysed in the future by other algorithms) as well as the genotype calls provided by the submitters. 

Responding to national regulations over human data sharing and other constraints, deploys and operates a Local EGA instance and tools that allow data discovery of genomic and phenoclinic data, following the GA4GH standard and international best practices.

This workshop aims at informing the human research community of the status and availability of Local EGA and discuss from several perspectives its need and usability challenges.
