An NGO maintaining operational relations with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO)
Global Variome provides support services to the international coordination work of the Human Variome Project; an international non-governmental organisation that is working to ensure that all information on genetic variation and its effect on human health can be collected, curated, interpreted and shared freely and openly.
WE HAVE MERGED WITH HUGO INTERNATIONAL!
We are delighted to announce that we have merged with HUGO International and the Human Genome Variation Society.
With this new merger, we plan to combine our HVP committees; for those interested in maintaining their membership with the Human Variome Project, we hope that you will join this new group. Our goal is the same; to maintain an international network of individuals and industry to ensure that all genetic variation information can be collected, curated, interpreted and shared for the benefit of human health.
We will operate under the collective membership of HUGO. Members will be invited to associate with HVP and/or HGVS, each of which will have dedicated committees within the structure and have seats on the executive board. The Global Variome will retain its separate identity as an associate NGO of UNESCO and will facilitate educational activities there.
