The Center for Big Data in Translational Genomics administrative support will facilitate the effective collaboration of team members across three countries in reaching Center research aims. This support will provide technical and administrative infrastructure to assess the effectiveness of the Center, technical infrastructure for compute platforms and software development spanning industry and academia, and it will support consortium-wide activities such as general collaboration, metadata analysis and sharing, and open competitions.

Public Health Relevance

By setting up infrastructure to operate openly and internationally, and with the participation of key players in industry, the Center will enable the global data and methods sharing necessary to bring genomics into the big data era, and thus obtain the statistical power we need to use genomics to understand disease and develop new precision treatments.
