Apply to join a GeCIP Domain
Please read the Privacy Notice for GeCIP members, which sets out key information that you should know when you provide your details to Genomics England as part of the Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership (GeCIP).
GeCIP application process
- Has your institution has signed the GeCIP Participation Agreement, which outlines the key principles that members of each institution must adhere to, including our Intellectual Property and Publication Policy? See if your institution has signed here.
- Submit your application using the relevant form found at the bottom of this page.
- Your Research Portal account will be created. Once you set your password and your account is fully set up, you will be able to log in and track your application.
- The domain lead will review your application, and your institution will verify your identity* for us via the Research Portal.
- Once you are accepted into a domain and verified by your institution, you will be sent an email requesting you complete Information Governance training and sign the GeCIP Rules. Completing the training and signing the GeCIP Rules are requirements for you to access the data.
- You will then receive an email letting you know your account has been given access to the Research Environment, and instructions for logging in.
*Identity verification is performed by your Institution, and as such this part of the process may take longer than four weeks as it is not under the control of Genomics England. Verification of researchers requires that you appoint a membership secretary whose role will be to confirm or deny academic affiliations with your institution.
Please click the relevant option below to view and submit an application to the GeCIP team:

Please note that you will not gain access to the 100,000 Genomes Project data immediately upon becoming a GeCIP member. Before you can access the data, your institution first needs to have verified your affiliation, your GeCIP Domain Lead needs to approve your application and you must complete the Information Governance training. Once all of these criteria are met, you will be granted access to the data.
