NIH LAUNCHES GENOTYPE-TISSUE EXPRESSION PROJECT—PROJECT TO CHART INFLUENCE OF DNA CHANGES ON GENE FUNCTION IN HUMAN TISSUES AND ORGANS

Pin It

The National Institutes of Health announced awards to support an initiative to understand how genetic variation may control gene activity and its relationship to disease. Launched as a pilot phase, the Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project will create a resource researchers can use to study inherited susceptibility to illness and will establish a tissue bank for future biological studies.
