Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD)

bioinformatics genetic genomic life sciences population population genetics short read sequencing whole genome sequencing


The Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD) is a resource developed by an international coalition of investigators that aggregates and harmonizes both exome and genome data from a wide range of large-scale human sequencing projects. The summary data provided here are released for the benefit of the wider scientific community without restriction on use. The v4 data set (GRCh38) spans 730,947 exome sequences and 76,215 whole-genome sequences from unrelated individuals, of diverse ancestries, sequenced sequenced as part of various disease-specific and population genetic studies. The gnomAD Principal Investigators and team can be found here, and the groups that have contributed data to the current release are listed here. Sign up for the gnomAD mailing list here.

Update Frequency

Data from new releases are made public as soon as they are available. New releases, including both minor and major versions, have historically been issued on the order of once per year.
