The Knowledge Portal Network is a software platform and ecosystem of interconnected web portals that integrate, interpret, and present human genetic and genomic data to spark insights into complex diseases.

The Knowledge Portals:

  • aggregate comprehensive data relevant to diseases and traits;

  • harmonize and analyze the data;

  • represent the data in a way that helps researchers to distill meaning from them; and

  • provide interactive tools for custom analyses that access individual-level data in a secure manner.

We welcome new collaborations. Please contact us at

What's new

Join us on Thursday May 21 at 12pm EDT for our next webinar! We'll review our latest data release, including major new genetic association datasets for several Knowledge Portals. We'll also give an update on the newest features of the in-development Common Metabolic Diseases Knowledge Portal. We hope you'll join this interactive session to contribute your feedback and help guide the development of this new resource!

We are pleased to launch a new Knowledge Portal addressing another common disease area, the Musculoskeletal Knowledge Portal (MSK-KP).

We are pleased to announce the Musculoskeletal Knowledge Portal (MSK-KP), an open-access resource that aggregates, integrates, analyzes, and displays 'omic results relevant to musculoskeletal traits and diseases. The MSK-KP will facilitate and accelerate musculoskeletal disease research by comprehensively amassing and distilling "big data" to make them accessible to all researchers.
