An Open Biobank For COVID-19 Research ー Access unique genotype and phenotype data sets to fight against COVID-19 with Genomelink
Genomelink’s COVID-19 Research & Biobank project is a non-profit, open research project to fight COVID-19. Participants from all over the world are registering DNA data and survey answers to help researchers discover what influences genetics may have on COVID-19 susceptibility.
All researchers are welcome to collaborate, providing your goals align with our project. We will provide quick access to data from tens of thousands of participants - genotype data, COVID-19 testing status data, and other phenotype data. Researchers can also distribute an original survey to get more insights and enhance your existing research project.

How to start project
Please fill in the contact form below. we'll reach out to your team shortly and set up an initial call. Once we confirm that your project aligns with our goals, we'll make an agreement and give you access to the data.
Our project is an open project that any researchers are welcome to join. We strongly believe that the open process will dramatically accelerate science.
We also believe that transparency is an essential factor for an open science project. We'll ask you to be transparent about the project so that the participants can be informed about how they contributed to science.
Genomelink’s COVID-19 project is a non-profit project, we do not charge researchers any fees. We embrace openness, transparency, and fairness to make this project successful!

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