For the past decade, dbGaP, the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes, has been the worldwide resource for genome-wide data. To celebrate this milestone, NCBI threw a party!
Mike Feolo, team lead for the dbGaP project, kicked off the festivities by chronicling the history of dbGaP in poetry form.
The celebration featured six lightning talks highlighting the past, present and future of dbGaP. Topics ranged from policy issues in dbGaP to success stories highlighting research projects making integral use of dbGaP services and resources.
A humorous video illustrating the importance of data sharing and management added to the festive mood.
The celebration concluded with a reception and social hour that included researchers and others from both within and outside NIH.
For 10 years, dbGaP has been proud to serve the research community. We look forward to continuing this tradition for decades to come.
