About the webinar

The European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) is a resource for archiving of all types of potentially identifiable genetic, phenotypic, and clinical data resulting from biomedical research projects. Its mission is to foster hosted data reuse, enable reproducibility, and accelerate biomedical and translational research.

To promote the use and interaction with professionals in research and teaching, we invite you to attend our first online workshop on the EGA and its ecosystem of tools. The goal of this training would be to present EGA repositories and tools so that they can be incorporated into your research or teaching.

The free online workshop will take place on Monday September 19, 10:00 to 13:00.

There will also be introduction to other repositories for exploring sensitive human data, including GPAP: the RD-Connect Genome-Phenome Analysis Platform for diagnosis and gene discovery in rare disease research ( and DisGeNET: a discovery platform designed to address a variety of questions concerning the genetic underpinning of human diseases (
