Outline of R&D

The Human Genome Variation Database is a repository database set up to achieve continuous and intensive management of Japanese GWAS data and related variations identified by NGS and other experimental methods. The scope of the registry includes not only disease-related variations, but also drug efficacy-related, adverse drug effect-related, virus resistance-related variations and clinical information. We have widely called for data submission to aim for data-sharing among researchers in cooperation with NBDC. We believe that this database improves our understanding of disease mechanisms, disease heterogeneity, and disease-disease relationships and contributes to the realization of personalized medicine.
