The GCC has developed >20 database applications for many research projects. All these databases have been developed using a common platform and as open source software to maximize their use and the development of new features. This package is known as the ‘Molecular Genetics Information System’ (MOLGENIS) and is currently installed in Leicester (GWAS central), the European Bioinformatics Center (phenoflow), and the Finnish Institute for Molecular Medicine (FIMM, Findis and Nordic GWAS databases). GCC uses MOLGENIS to develop new, custom-made databases for its collaborators and clients.
