Resequencing and Genotyping Service (RS&G)
The Venter Institute, in collaboration with the University of Washington, Seattle, and The Johns Hopkins University, is currently working on research projects involving resequencing and genotyping. These peer-reviewed projects were selected by the National Institutes of Health's National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), as part of the NHLBI's Resequencing and Genotyping Service (RS&G). Launched in October 2004, the RS&G program was established to enable researchers to more rapidly identify disease pathways of heart, lung, and blood diseases, as well as sleep disorders, ultimately enabling discovery of targeted therapeutics. Principal investigators currently conducting studies to determine the genetic cause, outcome, or progression of cardiovascular or respiratory diseases or sleep disorders are encouraged to apply for the complimentary resequencing and genotyping services.
NHLBI is currently accepting applications for this program.
