The Federated EGA (European Genome-phenome Archive) is a distributed solution for sharing and exchange of human -omics data across national borders. Federated instance collects metadata of -omics data collections stored in national or regional archives and make them available for search through the main EGA portal.

The European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) is a service for permanent archiving and sharing of all types of personally identifiable genetic and phenotypic data resulting from biomedical research projects. The EGA contains exclusive data collected from individuals whose consent agreements authorise data release only for specific research use or to bona fide researchers.

The federated infrastructure for human genomics we are building with GA4GH will enable population-scale genomics data to be accessible across international borders, accelerating research and improving the health of European citizens.

Niklas Blomberg, ELIXIR Director



The sensitive data stored at Federated EGA instance is encrypted with Crypt4GH - a new standard file container format from the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH), allowing genomic data to remain secure throughout their lifetime, from initial sequencing to sharing with professionals at external organizations.

Strong encryption both in transit and at rest are critical requirements for Genomics England and other genomics in healthcare initiatives.
