EGI for Researchers
EGI is a database that contains de-identified exome sequence data from people with epilepsy and the accompanying de-identified clinical information. The goal of EGI is to collect data on a minimum of 1000 people with epilepsy who have had their exomes sequenced in a diagnostic lab and make these data available to advance research in epilepsy and other related conditions.
Efforts are also being made to link EGI with other existing databases that contain patient data in an effort to make EGI a more data-rich tool for researchers to use.
About the Data in EGI
EGI will house raw exome sequence data files (BAM/FASTQ) and the following clinical information, which will be provided by the person’s doctor:
In late 2015, the EGI data will be available to researchers via application to the EGI Access Committee. Applications to request the data will be made available on this website when the data becomes available.
