openSNP is a community-driven and community-owned project which lives
through the contributions of its members. It is not associated with any
institution and the only funding source for
openSNP is continuous crowdfunding,
which pays for the hosting costs.
Who's running the openSNP.org infrastructure?
The bulk of the coding was done by
Bastian Greshake Tzovaras,
Helge Rausch and
who are also taking care of running and maintaining the live website.
Bastian is working on his PhD in bioinformatics at the University of Frankfurt,
while Philipp already successfully took that step and is now a bioinformatics
post-doc at the University of Western Australia in Perth. Helge is working and
living as a webdesigner in Berlin and probably the biggest reason why this
website still works.
