The partners received £30,000 (about $46,000) in funding from the BBSRC to support their metabolomics data-sharing and analyses activities.

The consortium currently has phenotype data for more than 1,100 mouse knockout strains and hopes to have as many as 5,000 by next year

Researchers used histone marks associated with active promotors or enhancers to explore regulatory element evolution in 20 diverse mammalian species.

The grant will support a one-year pilot project to create a comprehensive map of human genetic variation for biomedical research.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – In an effort to address the high failure rate of drug candidates in clinical studies, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, the European Bioinformatics Institute, and GlaxoSmithKline have partnered to create a new center that will use genomics and big data technologies
