On November 13, 2015, BIPMed launched the first public genomic database in Latin America (bipmed.iqm.unicamp.br). The main objective of this initiative is to promote the sharing of genomic and phenotypic data, respecting international guidelines for the ethical and responsible work with this type of private information. These guidelines have been proposed by the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (https://genomicsandhealth.org/).
The BIPMed genomic database has had great success, with an impressive number of visits to the website by users from all over the world. It is now time to report the results achieved in the past year, and to discuss ways to expand and improve this initiative as well as new products that can be developed under the BIPMed umbrella.
BIPMed is an initiative of five Research Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDCs): The Brazilian Research Institute for Neuroscience and Neurotechnology (BRAINN), Center for Computational Science and Engineering (CCES); Center for Research in Cell Therapy (CTC); Obesity and Comorbidities Research Center (OCRC) and Center for Research on Inflammatory Diseases (CRID).
