Mission

Our Mission:

* Combine the elements of Open Science and crowdsourcing to enhance basic research, improve public health, and save lives.

* Make genomic sequences and research results freely available to the general public throughout the world.

* Conduct research using genomic sequences obtained through a variety of techniques and technologies to get sequences that are as accurate as possible and more completely aligned and phased, derive more accurate phylogenies and ancestral sequences, and make the results public and freely available to all.

* Provide a means for others to sponsor whole genome sequencing for people from underserved groups, and advocate for the rights of people with genetic disabilities.

* Develop phylogenies of all human non-recombining haploid segments, derive the Reconstructed Ancestral Human Reference Sequence, create population-specific linkage maps, and use the phylogenies to help with population genetics, medical and forensic research.

* Use open genomics to help demonstrate the fundamental unity of all mankind, discover human origins, history, and ancestry using archaeogenetics.

* Refute scientific inaccuracies that use genomic data to support genetic determinism, unscientific myths that divide people, and help oppose the commercial exploitation of closed genomic results for private profit.

Open Genomes is a member of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health.

Open Phylogeny and Ancestry Project


This is a study to use whole genome sequencing to establish human ancestral reference sequences and construct a more accurate molecular clock for dating branches and building phylogenetic trees that will be openly available for public use. We want to ensure these phylogenetic trees are available to help refine sequencing test results and ensure their accuracy, and for use in population genetics, ancestry, forensics, medical research and any other studies to be used for the advancement of science and public good, without being commercialized in a proprietary way or copyrighted and subject to licensing or any other type of user fees. For further details, please see an explanation of this study in the enclosed Open Genomes Foundation Informed Consent Protocol and the summary of the Core Principles of Bioethics.

Participation in this research project is completely voluntary.
