NIDCR Seeks to Fund New GWAS Data Tools

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research will use small research grants to support investigators who aim to develop statistical methods for analyzing genome-wide association data, according to the National Institutes of Health.

These NIDCR grants will provide up to $300,000 over two years and up to $200,000 per year, in modules of $25,000, to develop these technologies.

These research projects may involve secondary data analyses or the development of statistical methodologies using existing genome-wide data that is relevant to human dental or craniofacial conditions or traits.

Such data can be used for cost-effective studies of additional research questions, for studying analytic methods, and it may be combined with other data to address broader questions or develop new analytical approaches, according to NIH.

These grants will support secondary analyses of data from studies funded by NIDCR or of data generated from other sources.
