The Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Network is a National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI)-funded consortium tasked with developing methods and best practices for utilization of the electronic medical record (EMR) as a tool for genomic research. It combines DNA biorepositories with electronic medical record (EMR) systems for large scale, high-throughput genetic research in support of implementing genomic medicine. eMERGE studies and pilots genomic medicine translation through discovery, implementation, tools, and policy.
As a member of the eMERGE consortium, ChiP Director Abel Kho has developed EHR-based phenotyping methods to enable high-throughput genetic studies.
