The Blueprint for a National Approach to Genomic Information Management (NAGIM) is a digital genomics blueprint developed for the Federal Government. This is a national framework including best practice principles to guide an Australian strategy for managing genomic information.
Australian Genomics is developing recommendations for implementing NAGIM. We are undertaking pilot projects to develop and encourage adoption of standard approaches and tools supporting the collection, storage and use of genomic data in Australia.
To understand genomic test results and make new genomic discoveries, researchers and clinical services rely on information generated by the combination of genomic data from many different people and produced at different organisations. For this to happen, data needs to be collected, processed and shared using common and standardised approaches.
