DEVELOPMENT OF A PEER TO PEER PLATFORM FOR GENETIC DATA SHARING.

The new NGS technologies allow today to sequence whole genomes and obtain a very large number of genetic information. However, we have not enough knowledge to interpret the innumerable genetic variants that are continuously identified in the subjects analyzed. Public databases report a very small amount of information and often are not sufficient to understand whether a genetic variant can be pathogenic or not. The project concerns the conception and creation of Tool able to increase the knowledge we have about the individual genetic variants using a peer to peer approach and allowing each user to directly share information related to genetic variants of interest thereby increasing their common knowledge
