NEW YORK, June 27 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute is sponsoring a free DNA resequencing and genotyping service for certain investigators, the institute said today.
The NHLBI bills the service, called the RS&G Service, as a successor to programs such as its Mammalian Genotyping Service, which is "now in its final round." "With the new RS&G Service, investigators can now move from their genomic regions of interest to the specific genes involved in a disease," NHLBI said in a statement.
To be eligible for the new service, researchers must be conducting "ongoing studies associated with genetic components involved in the cause, variable outcome, and progression of diseases associated with the heart, lungs, blood vessels and blood; as well as sleep disorders," the institute said in the statement.
Additional information about the new service can be found here. The submission deadline for 2005 is Nov. 1.
