NEW YORK, March 27 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Institutes of Health is soliciting samples from genotyping studies for the Genetic Association Information Network that it launched last month.
GAIN will genotype samples from existing case-control studies of common diseases to provide data for whole-genome association studies. According to a notice the NIH issued Friday, the samples for this study have not been identified yet, so investigators are encouraged to nominate "appropriate sets of samples, and the associated phenotype and exposure data, from existing studies."
GAIN will fund the genotyping, so there will be no cost to those investigators who contribute samples, NIH said.
