The objective of this program is to improve the infrastructure for sharing clinical and genomic information in order to accelerate R&D, and to promote genomic medicine in a clinical setting.

In this program, we promote studies that clarify the relationship between genomic information and clinical characteristics such as information about diagnosis and treatment for Japanese patients in the fields of rare/intractable diseases, cancers, infectious diseases, dementia, and other diseases. Furthermore, it develops data storage (DS) for each disease group and integrated databases (IDB), which gather clinical and genomic integrated information to be utilized for clinical and research purposes.
