Abstract

The Genome in a Bottle Consortium is a public-private-academic consortium initiated by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop the technical infrastructure (reference standards, reference methods, and reference data) to enable translation of whole human genome sequencing to clinical practice. The consortium was initiated in a set of meetings in 2011 and 2012, and it now holds biannual public workshops in January at Stanford University and in August at NIST in Gaithersburg, Md.
