Open Genomes is an international tax-deductible non-governmental human genomics research and advocacy organization based in the United States and Germany.
Combine the elements of Open Science and crowdsourcing to enhance basic research, improve public health, and save lives.
Make genomic sequences and research results freely available to the general public throughout the world.
Conduct research using genomic sequences obtained through a variety of techniques and technologies to get sequences that are as accurate as possible and more completely aligned and phased, derive more accurate phylogenies and ancestral sequences, and make the results public and freely available to all.
Provide a means for others to sponsor whole genome sequencing for people from underserved groups, and advocate for the rights of people with genetic disabilities.
Develop phylogenies of all human non-recombining haploid segments, derive the Reconstructed Ancestral Human Reference Sequence, create population-specific linkage maps, and use the phylogenies to help with population genetics, medical and forensic research.
Use open genomics to help demonstrate the fundamental unity of all mankind, discover human origins, history, and ancestry using archaeogenetics.
Refute scientific inaccuracies that use genomic data to support genetic determinism, unscientific myths that divide people, and help oppose the commercial exploitation of closed genomic results for private profit.
