We are fighting with you. This is an Open science project.

Genomelink’s COVID-19 Research & Biobank is a non-profit, open research project
to fight against COVID-19.
The primary goal of this research is to learn the genetic determinants of COVID-19 susceptibility, severity, and potential outcomes. Such discoveries could help to generate hypotheses for drug repurposing, identify individuals at unusually high or low risk, and contribute to global knowledge of the biology of SARS-CoV-2 infection and disease. We aim to build a living digital cohort of thousands of COVID-19 survivors so that we can perform host genetics analyses with multiple research partners.

What is Genomelink?

Genomelink is a personal DNA cloud where people upload and store their DNA data to access more insights and contribute to a wide variety of health research projects. Until today, hundreds of thousands of people have already transferred their DNA data to Genomelink and have registered for genomics research projects. Genomelink is supported by UC Berkeley’s SkyDeck and Stanford University’s StartX.
