The Human Variome Project is neither a funding agency nor an organisation that requires a substantial amount of funding. The work of the Human Variome Project is centred on coordination and facilitation, and not on implementation. The Human Variome Project itself does not collect or store data, maintain technical infrastructure or employ database curators. This vital work is undertaken by our Consortium members through the network of HVP Country Nodes and Gene/Disease Specific Databases. These data sharing resources are developed and operated by our members and are funded independently from a wide-variety of sources, including, but not limited to research and infrastructure grants from funding agencies and philanthropic organisations in their respective countries and regions. Details on the funding sources for individual resources and projects can be found on their respective websites.
