Data Consortia

AnVIL hosts data from the following programs and also allows users to submit their own data to the platform.

Current Consortia


CARD is a collaborative initiative of the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) that supports basic, translational, and clinical research on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. CARD’s central mission is to initiate, stimulate, accelerate, and support research that will lead to the development of improved treatments and preventions for these diseases. Through CARD, researchers work across scientific domains and disease boundaries to bridge basic, preclinical, and clinical research with the goal of accelerating translational research on these devastating diseases.

The Centers for Common Disease Genomics are a collaborative large-scale genome sequencing effort to comprehensively identify rare risk and protective variants contributing to multiple common disease phenotypes.


The Centers for Mendelian Genomics is a multi-center collaboration aimed at identifying the genes responsible for Mendelian phenotypes by whole exome and whole genome sequencing.


The Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project is an ongoing effort to build a comprehensive public resource to study tissue-specific gene expression and regulation. Samples were collected from 54 non-diseased tissue sites across nearly 1000 individuals, primarily for molecular assays including WGS, WES, and RNA-Seq.

The 1000 Genomes Project, launched in January 2008, is an international research effort to establish variation profiles across the human population. This open access data set continues to be a valuable resource to geneticists.


The Clinical Sequencing Evidence-Generating Research (CSER) consortium is a national multi-site research program funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD).Active 2011 to 2023


The Electronic and MEdical Records and Genomics project (eMERGE) is a national network organized and funded by the NHGRI that combines DNA biorepositories with electronic medical record (EMR) systems for large scale, high-throughput genetic research in support of implementing genomic medicine.


The Population Architecture Using Genomics and Epidemiology Consortium investigates ancestrally diverse populations to gain a better understanding of how genetic factors influence susceptibility to disease.


The Human Pangenome Reference Consortium aims to modernize the human reference to include a collection of diverse and highly accurate, haplotype-phased genome assemblies. This initiative will generate new technical standards in genome sequencing, scalable and reproducible assembly methods, and pangenomic tool development to ensure comprehensive variant discovery.
