The NIG relies on the possibility to use the Cineca facility to enable the storage and analysis of data produced by genome sequencing by NIG partners and collaborators, and to make a Repository which allows to extract data from human genomic variants with particular reference to the Italian population.

The purpose of a centralized repository is precisely to coordinate the storage of data in a single platform to improve access to and analysis of Italian genomic data by the biomedical community. The overall idea is to create an environment that ensures the privacy protection and confidentiality of data involved.
