BRCA Share was launched on April 21st 2015
BRCA Share is a novel gene datashare initiative that provides scientists and commercial laboratory organizations around the world with open access to BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic data. The programís goal is to accelerate research on BRCA gene mutations, particularly variants of uncertain significance, to improve the ability of clinical laboratory diagnostics to predict which individuals are at risk of developing these cancers.
Joining BRCA Share
As of June 1st 2015, registration will be required to access the UMD databases of BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene data.
