The Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership (GeCIP) is organised into rare disease, cancer and cross-cutting topics called ‘domains’. See a list of the current GeCIP domains.
If you would like to join a GeCIP domain(s) or subdomain please complete this form.
- Your details will be sent to the GeCIP domain lead, who will be in touch to discuss your application further.
- Note that membership of domains does not govern members’ access to data – all GeCIP members can see all 100,000 Genomes Project data within the research environment.
- Applicants need only join the domain(s) that their intended research activities fit into. Please only apply for up to three GeCIP domains at one time.
- Once you become a member of a domain and are from a valid institution you will then have to go through a regulatory process to gain access to the de-identified sequencing data.
Please complete all fields with as much detail as possible. If you experience any difficulties when using this form or need more information, contact us at [email protected]
Expectations of GeCIP members
As a member of a GeCIP domain you will be given access to the 100,000 Genomes Project dataset. However, there are expectations of members of the GeCIP research community that go beyond data access and analysis. These include: Applicants should note that their proposed research plans may overlap with projects that are already part of the domain’s detailed research plan. Where such overlap exists, we would expect new GeCIP members to collaborate with those already undertaking the analysis.
Please note that you will not gain access to the 100,000 Genomes Project data immediately upon becoming a GeCIP member. Before you can access the data, your institution first needs to have signed the GeCIP Participation Agreement and verified your affiliation, your domain needs to have been given access to the data, and your GeCIP Domain Lead needs to approve your application. After these criteria are met, it may take up to 3 weeks before you receive your account details, as accounts are created in batches. Please see GeCIP and your access to data for more information.
- Contribution to the knowledge base for genome interpretation (for example via PanelApp)
- Active and effective collaboration within your GeCIP domain and with other GeCIP domains
- Expert assistance in genome interpretation to improve diagnostic yield for NHS Genomic Medicine Centres (GMCs)
- Contribution to training within your domain where needed
- Contribution to the ongoing management and administration of the GeCIP domain where requested
- Other activities in line with the provisions of the GeCIP Rules
