genomic data sharing

The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) is an international standards development organization (SDO) focused on advancing human health and medicine through genomic data sharing and interoperability. Founded in 2013, the organization has evolved over time and has adapted to unexpected challenges in ways that we believe would be of interest to the broad biomedical community. In this chapter, we present our experiences to support others wishing to share data through global, community-driven standards supporting SDG3.
