NHGRI's Genotyping Service Shifts to Electronic Applications

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The genotyping services program that the National Human Genome Research Institute offers to researchers through the Center for Inherited Diseases is taking its submissions program online and plans to stop accepting paper applications.
 
The National Institutes of Health said today that NHGRI’s last receipt date for paper applications is July 1, and the first receipt date for electronic applications is November 3.
 
CIDR provides genotyping and statistical genetics services to scientists who are searching for genes that contribute to human diseases. It is focused mainly on multifactorial hereditary disease, NIH said, but it will accommodate requests for analysis of single-gene disorders. A competitive peer-review process conducted by a chartered scientific review committee determines which applicants will gain access to the service, NIH said.
 
NHGRI will issue a program announcement this summer with information about special receipt dates for the X01 funding mechanism.
