Large-scale genomics project will hunt genes behind common childhood diseases

e capable of producing approximately 150 million genotypes per day, all extracted from blood samples. Children's Hospital will be the only pediatric hospital to have this technology entirely at its disposal."

The Center plans to analyze blood samples from over 100,000 children over the next three years. Patients from the Children's Hospital network will be asked to contribute blood samples. For those who agree, a sophisticated information management system will track the samples and store medical records information in an encrypted form to preserve patient confidentiality. Clinicians will also ask the children's parents to contribute blood samples and divulge medical information, to strengthen the project's base of information.

"Our sample size will be large enough to provide great statistical power to our research," added Dr. Hakonarson. "We will be able to characterize genotypes and health conditions over a sizable population of children. This project will help to set the standard for identifying biological links to childhood diseases."
