Participants in the GSC include biologists, computer scientists, those building genomic databases and conducting large-scale comparative genomic analyses, and those with experience of building community-based standards.

The mission of the GSC is to work towards:

  • Making genomic data discoverable
  • Enabling genomic data integration, discovery and comparison through international community-driven standards
