Donating your genome and health data to science is a great way to enable advances in understanding human genetics, biology, and health. We seek volunteers willing to donate diverse personal information to become a public resource.
Open data is a critical component of the scientific method, but genomes are both identifiable and predictive, so many studies don’t share their data. The PGP is a unique resource of public human data that allows open collaborative research on human genomes and biology.
Started as a pilot project of 10 people in 2005, the Harvard PGP is now a member of the Network of Personal Genome Projects that has grown to include researchers at many leading institutions around the globe.
