An integrated platform connecting databases, registries, biobanks and clinical bioinformatics for rare disease research

Welcome to the central platform for access to data submitted by RD-Connect’s partner projects. The online genomics analysis interface is currently only open to beta-testers, but we look forward to welcoming additional users later in 2015. Please email to register for updates on platform release.

Get started today


Some of the RD-Connect data can only be accessed by validated users. For the time being, only a few selected beta testers from our partner projects NeurOmics and EURenOmics are registered.

Registration for other users will open later in 2016. Please email us ( if you want to be notified when registration opens.

Registration Form »


Data from sequencing experiments submitted by participating research projects is processed with a standard pipeline and made available for online analysis through a user-friendly interface to authorised users.
