GBMI Working Groups

Main working groups were formed at the outset and a number of biobank groups joined these:

-       A management committee with one representative from each participating project to oversee the activity and be available to resolve questions or disputes that might arise.

-       A phenotype committee with representatives from each participating project who can discuss and propose phenotype definitions suitable for extraction from different biobanks in support of approved projects.

-       An analysis committee involving analysts from each participating project in order to discuss methodological choices and to get into the summary statistic data to test and develop new methods and hypotheses.
