Investigation of the molecular pathogenisis and pathophysiology of Disorders of Sex Development



The EuroDSD project has recently been funded by the EU under the FW7 ICT e-Health programme. This 3-year project will provide a system where secure access to a range of clinical data related to sex development across Europe is supported. NeSC are the e-Infrastructure providers in this project. As well as providing secure access to a range of genotypic and phenotypic data sets across Europe, the particular data research challenges associated with this domain stem from the rarity and hence scarcity of data itself. Disorders of sexual development in new born and non-pubescent teenagers are a relatively rare phenomenon. These considerations will result in limited data resources being made available hence the need to capture as much information as possible is needed from those documented cases. Based on these considerations, we expect the way in which the data is captured, shared and analysed will have its own research themes.
