Correcting for Microbial Blooms in Fecal Samples during Room Temperature Shipping

PMCID: 5340865
PMID: 28289733
DOI: 10.1128/mSystems.00199-16

[…] led studies. To address this limitation, we compared all AGP fecal samples (~7,000 samples) to data from 3 studies comprised of fecal samples immediately frozen (fresh-frozen) after collection (6, 7; Personal Genome Project [PGP; unpublished data, Qiita study ID 1189]). Importantly, because each study represented a different population, it is likely that sOTUs were present at different frequencies […]


Genome wide data from two early Neolithic East Asian individuals dating to 7700 years ago

[…] ed with a reference panel containing modern genomes from the HO panel and selected ancient genomes [this data set was described by Jones et al. ()] as well as an additional 45 Korean genomes from the Personal Genome Project Korea ( using PLINK 1.07 (). Additional sample information is available in extended data table S1, including sample IDs, populations, and groupings used […]


Secure Multi pArty Computation Grid LOgistic REgression (SMAC GLORE)

BMC Med Inform Decis Mak
PMCID: 4959358
PMID: 27454168
DOI: 10.1186/s12911-016-0316-1

[…] trated the possibility to re-identifying individuals from the public query system of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) []. Sweeney’s study successfully identified participants of the Personal Genome Project (PGP) []. In addition, with some background information, an attacker can even identify sensitive information of a participant using “anonymized” biomedical data [–]. The study […]


Extensive sequencing of seven human genomes to characterize benchmark reference materials

Sci Data
PMCID: 4896128
PMID: 27271295
DOI: 10.1038/sdata.2016.25

[…] com/giabpilot). The NIST RM 8398 was prepared by Coriell from a large growth of cells, and the DNA was extracted and mixed to produce about 8300 10 ug vials of DNA. The remaining genomes are from the Personal Genome Project. These genomes are also available as EBV-immortalized B lymphoblastoid cell lines and as extracted DNA from Coriell, and 4 of them will be available as NIST RMs, planned for re […]


Turning Participatory Microbiome Research into Usable Data: Lessons from the American Gut Project

DOI: 10.1128/jmbe.v17i1.1034

[…] e contribution of observational data, such as bird sightings or flu symptoms, in projects like Flu Near You (, but may also involve crowdsourced data collection, modeled by the Personal Genome Project (, or even crowdsourcing data analysis, through platforms like the online games Foldit ( and EteRNA ( […]


VariantSpark: population scale clustering of genotype information

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4676146
PMID: 26651996
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-2269-7

[…] We acquired genomic data from the Personal Genome Project (PGP) website ( We sort the genotype data from 23andMe microarray platforms by genome build. Using a custom shell script, we convert […]
