Musculoskeletal Genomics Knowledge Portal (MGKP)

NEW –   A Musculoskeletal Genomics Knowledge Portal (MGKP) is in development by the Broad Institute in collaboration with the IFMRS.

The Knowledge Portal Network is an infrastructure that integrates, interprets, and presents human genetic data to spark insights into complex diseases.  The IFMRS is in a unique position to bring together datasets worldwide by involving all our member societies. 

A working group has been set up to identify the relevant data:
CHAIR: Douglas Kiel (Big Data Group member/ASBMR)
Lynda Bonewald (Big Data Group co-chair/ASBMR)
Emma Duncan (Big Data Group co-chair/ANZBMS)
Fernando Rivadeneira (ECTS)
Yukki Imai (JSBMR)
Jennifer Westendorf (ORS)
David Karasik (ASBMR)
Ralph Muller (ISBM)
John Kemp (University of Queensland)
