The eMERGE Network aims to share best practices, expertise and experiences within and outside of the consortium, as well as disseminate association findings, tools and best practices to the scientific community at large. Below, you will find a subset of education and informatics-based tools, as well as templates & formats generated and implemented Network-wide. These tools are publicly available and shareable with other institutions or consortia.

Informatics Tools Button Educational Tools Button

eleMAP | Harmonizes local phenotype data dictionaries to existing metadata and terminology standards

eRecordCounter | Provides exploratory data figures for research planning purposes and feasibility assessment

PheKB | Offers a collaborative environment to build and validate electronic algorithms to identify characteristics of patients within health data

PheWAS Catalog | Functions as a platform for analysis of phenotypes against a single gene variant

SPHINX | Operates as a tool for exploring data for hypothesis generation, especially around drug response implications of genetic variation across the eMERGE PGx cohort

IMAGene | Helps you learn about genomic screening to determine which genetic tests are best

Learning Genetics | Presents introductory videos about components of genetics | Provides information about genetic test results and disease risks
