The GeneROOT project, which started in May 2016, is run by CERN openlab in collaboration with King's College London. It aims to use ROOT, a data-processing framework developed at CERN for the high-energy physics community, to analyse large genomics datasets. The project is initially making use of sequences from TwinsUK, the largest UK adult twin registry, but seeks to extend this to similar datasets across the globe. The next step is to integrate the standard data format used in genomics into ROOT and then adapt the analysis tool to the genomics community's needs.
