NIDA Plans $10M for Addiction Genomics Research | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institute of Drug Abuse will give $10 million in 2010 to fund deep sequencing studies aimed at identifying SNP variants and structural variants that may affect addiction risk in samples that are known to have drug abuse phenotypes.

NIDA plans to issue up to four grants of as much as $2.5 million per year for five years for research that will explore particular pharmacogenomic regions already identified by genome-wide association studies and other means and which could benefit from deep next-generation sequencing and analysis.
