NEW YORK, Aug. 8 (GenomeWeb News) - A project announcement released by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism yesterday called for the submission of projects that would identify SNPs associated with alcoholism.
The PA emphasized the utilization of "advanced technologies such as high-throughput SNP genotyping, haplotype pattern mining, admixture linkage disequilibrium mapping, and DNA pooling for fine mapping" in project applications. The announcement specified DNA and protein microarrays as two techniques that could be used for "fine mapping" of alcoholism genes.
Application submission dates will have the standard February, June and October deadlines for NIH grant submissions. No funding caps were specified in the announcement.
