NHGRI Genomic Data Science Working Group

The NHGRI Genomic Data Science Working Group is a subcommittee of the National Advisory Council for Human Genome Research (NACHGR). The working group was created in 2017 to facilitate a deeper engagement of the NACHGR in the numerous and increasingly complex issues at the interface between genomics and data science.

The working group has also been charged with providing input to the NHGRI Director and other Institute leaders about relevant trans-NIH issues related to data science, for which NHGRI is frequently called upon for leadership and expertise. The general remit is deliberately broad, with the intent to make the working group poised to consider the full spectrum of data science challenges (from data management to data usage, including policy-related elements) as they relate to all areas of genomics (from basic science to genomic medicine implementation).
