Workshop on Implementing Genomic Research Projects

Jointly organized by BBMRI-ERIC and EASI-Genomics

This online workshop is aimed at people working along the complex workflow of genomic research to give a clear overview of the whole process. Specifically, we address biomedical researchers, genomics experts, medical professionals and biobank and repository managers who want to organise genomic research projects on human biological samples, both in academic and industrial settings.

The detailed agenda is available here. Please note that participation is free of charge, but that registration is required:

Day 1 (Wed 1 Feb 2023, 13 - 16h30 CET)

We will address the key issues in genomic research involving human subjects, human biological samples and associated medical data: ethics, legal issues, privacy and data protection, data standardisation and the implementation of standardized sample workflows, as well as data deposition in public repositories.

Day 2 (Thu 2 Feb 2023, 13 - 15h30 CET)

We will provide practical guidelines on how to manage genomic data from human samples. The goal is to present a logically organised timeline that avoids miscalculation of timings and overlooking important issues that may be particularly challenging, e.g., in transnational collaboration. Further, we will deal with procurement of samples and data in a workflow aligned with current CEN/ISO standards for pre-analytical procedures, quality management and deposition of data in public repositories.
