Committees & Working Groups

The structure of IHEC is based on a distributed organizational model. This model has been successfully used in other international genome projects, and relies on the interaction among funders (providing oversight), an international scientific steering committee (setting guidelines), and scientific groups and centers (data production centers, regional or national-level data analysis and coordination centers).

IHEC currently has two committees and seven working groups. Their responsibilities and members are detailed below. Each working group meets virtually at least once per month.
