The NHLBI established the RS&G Program in 2004 to offer custom DNA resequencing and genotyping services at no charge to approved investigators seeking to identify the specific regions of the genome involved in the cause, variable outcome, and progression of heart, lung, and blood diseases and disorders.
From 2004 to 2010, the Laboratory Centers were:
- Resequencing - University of Washington (Deborah A. Nickerson, PI)
- Resequencing - J. Craig Venter Institute (Sam Levy, PI 2004-2009; Ewen F. Kirkness, PI 2009-2010)
- Genotyping - Johns Hopkins University (Alan F. Scott, PI).
For 2011 to 2016, the Laboratory Center is:
- University of Washington (Deborah A. Nickerson, PI).
The RS&G Service is no longer accepting applications; however, there may be relevant NHLBI or NIH funding announcement opportunities now, or in the future, of interest. These opportunities are announced through the NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts and NHLBI Funding Opportunity Information websites; email subscriptions to both are available.
