RDMM-Europe has been established by Solve-RD, an EU-funded research project including 22 beneficiaries and >20 associated partners. The overall aim is to boost research in rare diseases, discover new disease-causing genes and obtain evidence for pathogenicity through functional validation.
The 'Matchmaker Exchange' project was launched in October 2013 to address this challenge and find genetic causes for patients with rare disease. This involves a large and growing number of teams and projects working towards a federated platform (Exchange) to facilitate the matching of cases with similar phenotypic and genotypic profiles (matchmaking) through standardized application programming interfaces (APIs) and procedural conventions.
