As we produce and release participant genome data publicly, the Personal Genome Project also tries to provide some rudimentary interpretations of that genome data to participants (along with access to the genome sequence data itself). GET-Evidence is an open, collaborative system for genetic variant interpretation that has been developed to address this need. The database of variant interpretations is shared without restriction using CC0, and the associated software under a free software license.
I spent some time this last week adding guides to help people interested in the exploring the GET-Evidence system. Tom Clegg and I also did some brainstorming and added this summary image (below) to the front page. If you’re interested in seeing some interpretations for PGP participants who have already had their genomes sequenced, check out GET-Evidence’s genome reports page.
