The increasing size and complexity of genetic and phenotypic data to include hundreds of thousands of participants poses a significant challenge for data storage and analysis. We demonstrate use of the GOR database and query language underlying our platform to mine UK Biobank and other datasets for efficient phenotype selection, GWAS and PheWAS, and to archive and query the results.

A technical demonstration of how to use the GOR Database (GORdb) to query genomic and phenotypic data across multiple biobanks. Using the R software development kit for GORdb, bioinformaticians can easily interrogate genomic data using a unified schema and query language from their favorite programming language. During this talk, these tools will be utilized to build a cross-biobank group of affected Epilepsy cases using samples from Simons Foundation and UK Biobank.
