WP2 Harmonisation

Objectives

The goal of WP2 is to harmonise sequencing and genotyping procedures at different facilities participating in the distributed infrastructure. The focus will be to guarantee high quality data output and increased (cost) efficiency across multiple participating centres. Interoperability and benchmarking of sample management will be further developed. The coordination with relevant national (DE, UK, FR, ES, SE) and international initiatives (BBMRI, P3G, ISBER, and potentially a new biobank infrastructure being established in the frame of this EU Capacity program) will be improved in conjunction with WP5 (networking to biobanking activities). The ESGI infrastructure will strengthen communication lines and assure dissemination of standardisation issues. Foresight studies will help to translate emerging technologies into routine procedures in genome research, particularly for (3rd generation) sequencing applications. Research into major sources of sample variation will help to increase data quality and success rates.
