National Institutes of Health: Expanding the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements in Human and Model Organisms

by:

The National Institutes of Health, otherwise referred to as NIH, is a US agency operating within the Department of Human Health and Services which is primarily responsible for bio-medical and health-related research studies.

NIH's work is greatly concentrated on acquiring fresh information to help prevent, detect, diagnose and treat a wide range of diseases and disabilities, thereby paving the way towards uncovering new knowledge that will lead to better health for everyone.

The National Institutes of Health, in cooperation with the National Human Genome Research Institute, has established a funding opportunity to support the Expanding the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements in Human and Model Organisms project.

The Expanding the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements in Human and Model Organisms, also known as ENCODE, is a project that seeks to solicit applications or proposals containing research studies that aims to apply high-throughout, cost-efficient strategies that would significantly extend resources to become complete catalogs such as feasible employing state-of-the-art technologies.

The project is currently focused on two major classes of functional elements, that is, the genes (both protein-coding and non-coding), their RNA transcripts, and as well as their transcriptional regulatory regions. Which is why, the project also aims to obtain applications that have the potential to continue the ENCODE project's efforts to develop a rather comprehensive catalog of functional elements.
