Human Variome Project

HVP

The HVP aims to collect and curate mutations in all genes from all countries for the global clinician and diagnostician community. The project is supported by world leaders in human genetics from over 25 countries. Malaysia is one of the members of the HVP. The Malaysia Human Genome Variation Consortium has been established and acts as the Malaysian node of the HVP.

The Human Variome Project (HVP) is currently conducting work in the areas of ethics, education, data collection from clinics and, laboratories, data transfer & databasing (gene specific/LSDB), overall data integration and access, assessment of pathogenicity, publication, credit and incentives, developing and emerging countries and worldwide collection, funding mechanisms and governance, nomenclature and standards, human genome variation and common diseases, translation to healthcare and pilot projects.

The Human Variome Project Node Australia

HVPA

The Human Variome Project Australian Node is an electronic repository of genetic test results and interpretations collected from pathology laboratories conducting genetic testing around the country. It was launched in 2011 in order to provide a resource for Australian diagnostic labs, clinicians and genetic counsellors when interpreting test results and communicating those findings to patients.

BioGRID

BioGRID

BioGRID mission is to provide a knowledge platform for the ethical integration of data from individuals, health services, industry, research organisations and governments for research that reduces the burden of disease and improves human health.

The core values are:

  • Collaboration with health sector stakeholders
  • Respect for the beliefs and capabilities of others
  • Innovation through creativity and resourcefulness
  • Integrity by being ethical, honest, fair and open
  • Sustainability through financial and risk management

MySIZE

MySIZE

In addition to genomic variations, the human body form also provides important context for interpreting variation among human populations. Both body size and body shape vary systematically in earlier and modern humans. Differences in body form among modern humans are thus likely to result from an interaction between long-term genetic factors, including climatic adaptation, as well as developmental environment, including diet and disease.

The Malaysian Sizing Survey (MySIZE) is a national 3D anthropometric study of the physical body sizes and shapes of Malaysians. MySIZE is part of the 1Malaysia Human Genome Variation Consortium.
