    UNESCO International Basic Sciences Program celebrated the 60th anniversary of the discovery of the structure of DNA and the 10th anniversaries of the completion of the Human Genome Project and the adoption of the International Declaration on Human Genetic Data In opening the event Mr David Abraham Chairman of the Board of Human Variome Project International which operates the Project s International Coordinating Office reminded those present why these anniversaries deserve notice Genetics and genomics drastically impacts almost all aspects of human disease 7 million children are born each year with a genetic disorder or birth defect 90 of these children are from low income countries We need better ways to share our genomic knowledge so that all people can share in the benefits of our common genetic heritage The Human Variome Project is an international consortium of scientists and health professionals working to improve global health through the free and open sharing of genetic variation information The role of the HVP is to facilitate the collection curation interpretation and sharing of genetic variation information across the world said Abraham The Project has a proud working relationship with UNESCO Together we promote research to better understand and manage human disease to share progress in human genetics across national boundaries and stimulate further breakthroughs said UNESCO Deputy Director General Mr Getachew Engida UNESCO is working to raise awareness among member states about the importance of genetic research especially for health Governments and other players must invest far more in genetics and genomics At the same time we need greater cooperation across borders Humanity has no choice but to move forward together 0 Comments Continue reading A Global Alliance to Enable Responsible Sharing of Genomic and Clinical Data Posted by Timothy D Smith on Wednesday 05 June 2013 in News Over 70 leading health care research and disease advocacy organizations including the Human Variome Project announced today that they have taken the first steps to form an international alliance dedicated to enabling secure sharing of genomic and clinical data to improve research into the genetic basis of human disease 0 Comments Continue reading Ensuring the Free and Open Sharing of Published Variant Data A Statement by the Human Variome Project Consortium Posted by Timothy D Smith on Wednesday 20 March 2013 in Statements Introduction The Human Variome Project Consortium believes that the free and open sharing of human genetic variation information will lead to improved health outcomes for all people worldwide We also believe that the most efficient and effective means for sharing this information is via a network of gene disease specific databases as described by the Project s Global Collection Architecture To ensure the fullest dissemination of variation information to the genetics community we believe that all sequence variants reported in journal articles should not only be fully and accurately described within the articles that report them but also deposited into the appropriate gene disease specific databases prior to publication We acknowledged that some journals already share these values but

  • Brigham will recruit patients for gene study - Blog - Human Variome Project
    opportunity to understand those has been limited to selected investigations of a particular disease cancer diabetes or the like yet we know that individuals patients in the hospital don t have just one thing and we d also like to understand the crosstalk between those different conditions such as how diabetes affects kidney disease and heart disease she said What sets such efforts apart from previous genetic studies is not only their size but also the way in which they are designed to integrate genetic information with the medical record family history and a detailed health questionnaire In addition the patients health will be tracked over many years Many of us feel that within 10 years it ll be routine to sequence a human genome at less than the current cost of the colonoscopy said David Hunter a professor of cancer prevention at the Harvard School of Public Health who is not involved in either of the Boston studies The problem is converting all those sequences into actionable clinical information will require very very large studies These are the first generation of such studies In the decade since the first human genome was decoded important progress has been made in understanding the genome and technology has been developed at breathtaking speeds But even as studies have made progress in finding genetic variations that contribute to disease they haven t yet yielded much information useful for guiding treatment The Brigham study will start later this month with a pilot phase that will recruit 600 patients through six clinics Patients will receive a letter at home about two weeks before an appointment alerting them to the possibility of participating Their data will not be given to health insurers nor will it be put in patients medical records Patients will not be charged for the testing with the 250 000 cost covered by internal hospital funds Researchers will need to raise further funds to pay for the full project The genetic information collected will not affect patients medical care unless researchers find something with profound and immediate medical implications An example Seidman said of such a condition is a mutation known to cause sudden cardiac death The way I would look at it is sort of like the Census you want your information to be recognized and be part of any solution that s found to any health issue And if your genetic material is not there it can t be counted said Dr Elinor Mody medical director of the Fish Center for Women s Health one of the Brigham pilot sites The Children s Hospital Boston project on the other hand is taking the unusual step of informing families about what researchers find in their genes Ultimately the study offers benefits to both doctors and patients Patients data will contribute to new genetic research and patients themselves will potentially benefit from findings about risk or potential therapies that are relevant to their genetic makeup said one of the leaders of the Children

  • UNESCO hosts Third Human Variome Project meeting - Blog - Human Variome Project
    The complete sequencing of the human genome met with worldwide acclaim not only because a significant mountain had been climbed but because scientists acquired the potential to simplify the analysis of both non inherited and inherited genetic disease The next frontier is the discovery and documentation of all variations present in human genes so that the results of the Human Genome can be put to practical use for disease treatment and prevention The Human Variome Project gathering and sharing genetic variation data aims to make this happen UNESCO wishes to underline the importance of utilizing basic research to meet societal needs and bringing together scientists and civil society for dialogue and co operation said Walter Erdelen UNESCO Assistant Director General for Natural Sciences in his welcoming address to the meeting The multidisciplinary nature of the Human Variome Project which includes scientists and practitioners from different disciplines molecular biologists geneticists clinicians epidemiologists bioinformaticians and IT specialists allows for basic research findings to be accessible to and useful for clinicians and the people they serve The meeting which will continue until 14 May is focused on integration and implementation aspects of the collection of genetic variation data along with the relevant clinical implications will provide substantial opportunities for scientific research networking and the fostering of links between the diverse stakeholders Media contact Agnes Bardon Tel 33 0 1 45 68 17 64 This email address is being protected from spambots You need JavaScript enabled to view it HVP3 Underway Statement by the Participants of the 3rd Human Var Comments No comments made yet Be the first to submit a comment Leave your comment Don t forget to log in If you re a member of the Human Variome Project Consortium you might want to log in before posting a comment Not a
