Repositive launches Personal Genome Project data collection

Repositive CEO Fiona Nielsen

Repositive, the Cambridge company credited with creating the world’s largest portal for accessing human genomic research materials, has expanded the range of data available with the launch of a specialist collection for the Personal Genome Project.

The new PGP collection was formally unveiled this week at Repositive’s satellite symposium ‘Finding and Accessing Human Genomic Data’ at EHSG  in Copenhagen.  

The initiative collates all the data collected for the Personal Genome Project in one place combining data currently held in the US, UK, and Austria.

The Personal Genome Project aims to sequence and analyse the genomes and medical records of 100,000 global volunteers. It contains large amounts of genomic data including whole genome sequencing, methylation analysis and RNA-Seq.

The new PGP specialist collection adds to Repositive’s series of community led data sets which include Autism, Microbiome, Personal Genomes, Population and Methylation collections.

CEO Fiona Nielsen (pictured) said: “The Repositive Specialist Data Collections are already proving to be of significant benefit to many researchers. By collecting hard to find data in one place, we can ensure that researchers are able to quickly and easily find the data they need.”
