Brotman Baty Institute

Rating: Very Good

Strong Points: Easy to navigate; several publicly available resources.

Weak Points: Most resources mentioned are for institution investigators only.

The website for the Brotman Baty Institute for Precision Medicine, a collaboration between the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s Hospital, and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, provides both information about the institute and a number of resources that are available to the public. The institute’s website describes its mission and current projects, which cover areas such as single-cell sequencing, infectious diseases, genomics, and variant analysis. The website also describes numerous resources that are available to institute investigators and provides information about and links to several resources that are available to the public. Public resources include a database chronicling whole-organism single-cell sequencing results, a BRCA1 variant score database, and a database of multiplexed assays of variant effects. The Brotman Baty Institute is an interesting organization advancing precision medicine and the public resources on its website alone are worth looking into.
