Makes epigenomic datasets around the world easier to access and analyse

EpiShare is an innovative open science project to enhance the accessibility of epigenomic datasets. The project integrates GA4GH standards into two large global projects — the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) and International Human Epigenome Consortium (IHEC) — studying how reversible modifications have shaped the human genome. EpiShare offers methods and tools to let researchers worldwide better discover, navigate, and analyse epigenomic data.

EpiShare Platform

The EpiShare Platform builds GA4GH tools and standards and other online resources. It aims to create a web resource to make epigenomic data more easily discoverable and to enable the launch of multi-omics analyses on these controlled-access datasets at their storage locations.
