Get involved

Join the world’s leading health and research institutions working to expand responsible genomic data use.

Why get involved?

We welcome anyone working in genomics and related fields to participate in our inclusive global community. You help set the agenda for genomic data sharing, work with leaders in the field to solve your genomic interoperability problems, and gain professional experience in an international, collaborative setting.

By creating and using GA4GH products, you contribute to turning the promise of genomic medicine into routine practice. Join us in achieving this future by building the “internet of genomics,” where authorised researchers and clinicians can easily search all of the globe’s genomic and related data — while protecting the human rights of data owners.

There are many ways to get involved, from providing feedback on products, to joining regular meetings, to writing documents and coding standards.
