News Releases & Research Results Significant expansion of data listed in jMorp serving as a public database of genome-omics analysis information with the sample number increased to 15,000 and 4,700 respectively for metabolome analysis data (including longitudinal data) and whole-genome analysis

News Releases & Research Results


This research was conducted by Tohoku University Tohoku Medical Megabank Organization (ToMMo) under Tohoku Medical Megabank Project of Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED).

Key points of research results

  • ToMMo significantly expanded the data listed in Japanese Multi Omics Reference Panel (*jMorp), a public database serving as a comparative control with diseases.
    *jMorp, which was made public by ToMMo in July 2015, is the world’s first database for an integrated analysis for comprehensive plasma metabolome and proteome in at least 500 subjects. With an increase in the listed data and addition of genomic information since publication, it currently serves as a reference panel (reference data aggregate) comprehensively including overall information on human life science.
  • Specifically, the number of subjects for metabolome analysis has been increased from 10,000 to 15,000, with the temporal data also being listed for the first time.
  • The number of subjects for whole-genome analysis has been increased from 3,500 to 4,700, with the whole genome reference panel "4.7KJPN" being released.
  • This data expansion rendered "4.7KJPN" the largest genomic database for Japanese, with the number of metabolome information listed being 15,000, one of the world largest.
  • With utilization of data listed in jMorp by researchers in Japan, research progress can be expected, including identification of cause, prevention, and biomarkers relating to a disease.
