Informatics and Bioinformatics (WP4)

WP4 will be responsible for data management and logistics and informatics and for the integration of genetic and genomic data (proprietary and public) with existing biological and literature resources. Such integration is important at all stages of the project but it will have a particular role in WP5 where one aim will be to establish how prior information (on the SNPs and genes within a region) can be used to improve the efficiency of fine-mapping and resequencing.


The ENGAGE project consists of 8 research lines and 2 components dealing with “Training and Dissemination” and “Coordination”. Each component forms a workpackage (WP).


WP1 - Genome wide data integration and statistical genetics

WP2 - Novel sources of genome-wide variation

WP3 - Novel phenotypes

WP4 - Informatics and bioinformatics

WP5 - Identifying the causal variants

WP6 - Epidemiology and joint effects

WP7 - Clinical translation

WP8 - Societal aspects

WP9 - Dissemination and Training

WP10 Coordination
