NEW YORK(GenomeWeb) – The Genomic Medicine Alliance said on Thursday it has joined the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health as an organizational member.
The Global Alliance's goal is to establish, disseminate, and advocate for the use of interoperable technical standards for sharing and managing genomic and clinical data. More than 220 institutions are currently in the alliance.
GMA is a research network whose aim is to foster collaboration between scientists across the research space.
"By partnering with the Global Alliance, the Genomic Medicine Alliance aims to create synergies for the benefit of its members, particularly from developing countries, where genomics data sharing is still in its infancy," GMA said in a statement.
