PANGAIA

Pangenome Graph Algorithms and Data Integration

The PANGAIA project


PANGAIA is a EU funded project for filling the gap between the rapidly increasing power of DNA sequencing technologies and the current limitations in resolving the inherent complexity of the forthcoming volumes of data.
The leitmotif is to train young researchers in the area of computational pangenomics, while laying the computational foundations for personalized medicine.

Developing new techniques

Design and implementation of new techniques for constructing, managing, and analyzing pangenomes.

Share knowledge

Share knowledge and expertise with partner organizations. A key factor is the involvement of partners from non-EU countries such as Japan, Canada, and the US.
Furthermore, Open Science and FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) principles are main staples of PANGAIA.

Strengthen collaborations

Strengthening the existing collaborations among EU and non-EU groups, while creating new collaborations among the participants both within the EU and beyond its borders.

Generate results

To improve the scientific excellence and international competitiveness of all participants, and to promote their capability to generate results and tools of wider impact on the market.

FUNDING:

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Staff Exchange programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 872539
