Application form to join a GeCIP Domain

Fields marked with an * are required. In cases where the information is not applicable, please state N/A.


The Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership (GeCIP) is organised into rare disease, cancer and cross-cutting topics called ‘domains’. See a list of the current GeCIP domains.

If you would like to join a GeCIP domain(s) or subdomain please complete this form. Your details will be forwarded on to the GeCIP domain lead, who will be in touch to discuss your application further.

Note that membership of domains does not govern members’ access to data – all GeCIP members can see all 100,000 Genomes Project data within the research environment. Applicants need only join the domain(s) that their intended research activities fit into.

Once you become a member of a domain and are from a valid institution you will then have to go through a regulatory process to gain access to the de-identified sequencing data.

Please complete all fields with as much detail as possible. If you experience any difficulties when using this form or need more information, contact us at

Expectations of GeCIP members

As a member of a GeCIP domain you will be given access to the 100,000 Genomes Project dataset. However, there are expectations of members of the GeCIP research community that go beyond data access and analysis. These include:

  • Contribution to the knowledge base for genome interpretation (for example via PanelApp)
  • Active and effective collaboration within your GeCIP domain and with other GeCIP domains
  • Expert assistance in genome interpretation to improve diagnostic yield for NHS Genomic Medicine Centres (GMCs)
  • Contribution to training within your domain where needed
  • Contribution to the ongoing management and administration of the GeCIP domain where requested
  • Other activities in line with the provisions of the GeCIP Rules

Applicants should note that their proposed research plans may overlap with projects that are already part of the domain’s detailed research plan. Where such overlap exists, we would expect new GeCIP members to collaborate with those already undertaking the analysis.

Section 1. Personal Contact Details

Please use your institutional or work email address. Applications will not be accepted from Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo or any other personal accounts.

Please select all that apply.

Section 2. Becoming a member of the Clinical Interpretation Partnership

You may add up to five references for relevant papers you have published.

A conflict of interest has been described as: ‘a set of conditions in which professional judgment concerning a primary interest (such as patients' welfare or the validity of research) tends to be unduly influenced by a secondary interest (such as financial gain).’

Competing interests are currently defined by the Journal Nature as: ‘those of a financial nature that, through their potential influence on behaviour or content or from perception of such potential influences, could undermine the objectivity, integrity or perceived value of a publication.’

Please review your answers and ensure that you have completed all required fields before submitting this form.
