eMERGE HGSC-Clinical Laboratory
The Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Phase III program of the National Institutes of Health aims to develop and validate electronic phenotyping algorithms for large-scale, high-throughput genomics research; to discover genetic variants related to complex traits; to disseminate results and lessons learned to the scientific community; and to deliver state-of-the-art genomic knowledge, methods, and approaches to clinical decision support and clinical care.
eMERGE III consists of nine study sites, two central sequencing and genotyping facilities and a coordinating center. This portal is for sample uploads from sites served by the Human Genome Sequencing Center-Clinical Laboratory (HGSC-CL) and serves as a gateway to all data housed in the eMERGE Data Commons.
Investigators at external institutions may apply for affiliate membership to the eMERGE Network. Information about affiliate membership such as benefits, criteria for participation, and application process can be found at the eMERGE webpage.
