Governance and Support
The Global Biodata Coalition is in an interim phase and does not yet have a formal organizational structure. A steering committee consisting of members of funding bodies and data resource managers is currently acting on behalf of funders to manage the coalition. An interim Board of Funders, with representatives from national and charitable research funders, works with the steering group to formulate strategy. Support for the current operations of the GBC includes funding from nine funders and in-kind support from additional funders and institutions. The Letter of Understanding outlines the current governance structure and operations.
