In the past, hunting for the genes causing any disease has been a long and arduous task, but the biomedical tools and technologies now available to researchers are breathtaking, said Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., NHGRI director and co-chair of the NIH coordinating committee for GEI. These tools will enhance how we predict, diagnose and ultimately design personalized prevention and treatments for our patients.

In addition to the genome-wide association studies, two genotyping facilities and a coordinating center have also received funding for GEI. An additional estimated $9 million of GEI funds will be committed to the genotyping centers in September once late-breaking scientific opportunities are identified and prioritized, to process additional samples which will provide even greater power and accuracy to the genome-wide association studies. All genome-wide association elements of GEI are being awarded as cooperativ
