The VGP is a project of the G10K, which was founded in April 2009.

The G10K governing council, trustees, and working committees partner with scientific communities and represent over 150 members in over 50 institutions; this consortium has built an infrastructure from sample collection to genome sequencing, assembly, annotation, alignments, public data releases, and analyses for publication. The VGP started in February 2017.
