European Variation Archive

The European Variation Archive is an open-access database of all types of genetic variation data, from all species. The EVA provides access to highly detailed, granular, raw variant data from human, animal and plant species. All users can download data from any study, or submit their own data to the archive. You can also query all variants in the EVA by study, gene, chromosomal location or dbSNP identifier using our VCF Browser.

The European Genome-phenome Archive

The European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) contains human data collected from research participants whose consent agreements authorise data release only to bona fide researchers and possibly for specific uses. Strict protocols govern how information is managed, stored and distributed by the EGA project. The EGA help desk provides service for both data submitters and those seeking access to the available datasets.
