Autism Sharing Initiative

Builds the first federated, global network for sharing autism data

The Autism Sharing Initiative aims to connect the largest and most diverse collection of autism data in the world. By creating the first federated, global network for sharing genomics and clinical data, the Initiative will help accelerate discoveries and the development of precision therapeutics in autism. The network uses GA4GH standards and technologies to offer broad and responsible access to researchers.
