This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘Genomic data - improving discovery and access management’. This webinar took place on 14 June 2023.

Event description 

Australian human genome initiatives are generating vast amounts of human genome data to understand the cause of complex diseases, improve diagnosis / early disease detection and identify tailored treatment options. 

To achieve this, genomic data needs to be compared between multiple individuals and cohorts, often across efforts/jurisdictions, at national or global scales, and requires the genomic data to be findable, searchable, shareable, and linkable to analytical capabilities.

The Human Genome Platform Project aims to make it as easy as possible to securely and responsibly share human genome research data nationally and internationally. The project is building a ‘services toolbox’ that combines best practice technologies in human genome data sharing.

In this webinar the project team will discuss three important aspects of human genomic data sharing

  • i) discovery of genomic cohorts and the GA4GH Beacon protocol that enables this functionality across multiple sites

  • ii) streamlining of data access request management; the Garvan will share experience using the Resource Entitlement Management System (REMS) software package.

  • iii) community management functionality of CILogon and
