Who we are

GHGA is tightly embedded and connected to national and international infrastructures and initiatives. It will be operated as a German national node of the federated European Genome-Phenome Archive (EGA).

GHGA is funded as part of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI e.V.) via the DFG

With 46 Participants from 21 institutions, GHGA is organised in six data hubs across Germany combining leading institutions in genomic medicine, major omics data producers (including four DFG Sequencing Centers) and HPC centers committed to provide scalable infrastructure.

To ensure smooth working, seven workstreams were formed.
