Michigan Genomics Initiative (MGI) – Precision Health Analytics Platform

Michigan Genomics Initiative (MGI)

The Michigan Genomics Initiative (MGI) is a collaborative research effort among physicians, researchers, and patients at the University of Michigan (U-M) with the goal of combining patient electronic health record (EHR) data with corresponding genetic data to gain novel biomedical insights. 

The MGI study team processes genetic data for all genotyped study participants at a given time and makes these data available with the release of a “Data Freeze”. To date, MGI has released 6 Data Freezes.

* MGI implements a policy to move legacy Freezes to long term archive storage as new Freezes become available. Freeze N-2 will retire one month after the release of new Freeze N.  Historically Freezes release at a cadence of ~1 year, meaning any given Freeze will “live” in the central directory for ~2 years before moving to archive.
