The GA4GH Implementation Forum (GIF) will officially launch at this session! GIF is where the potential and power of GA4GH standards are recognized. The forum guides diverse scientific and clinical groups as they identify real-world use cases that can benefit from the end-to-end implementation of GA4GH products. In this session, participants will learn about 1) the structure of GIF; 2) the four GIF Projects that will be going through the process first; and 3) how to participate in these GIF Projects. There will also be time at the end of the session for participants to propose their own GIF Project ideas.
