The NHGRI Genomic Data Science Analysis, Visualization, and Informatics Lab-space (AnVIL) is a scalable and interoperable resource for the genomic scientific community, that leverages a cloud-based infrastructure for democratizing genomic data access, sharing and computing across large genomic, and genomic related, data sets. The AnVIL will facilitate integration and computing on and across large datasets generated by NHGRI programs, as well as initiatives funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), or by other agencies that support human genomics research.

In addition, the AnVIL will be a component of the emerging NIH Data Commons, and is expected to collaborate and integrate with other genomic data resources through the adoption of the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) principles, as their specifications emerge from the scientific community. The AnVIL will provide a collaborative environment where datasets and analysis workflows can be shared within a consortium, and be prepared for public release to the broad scientific community through AnVIL user interfaces.
