NIH Clinical Center

NIH program to jump-start genomic medicine

A new, two-year NIH initiative called the Clinical Center Genomics Opportunity (CCGO) will build an infrastructure for clinical genomic sequencing so clinical researchers can use genomic data for clinical research. CCGO will underwrite the DNA sequencing and analysis of 1,000 exomes, the functionally important 1-2 percent of the genome that codes for proteins. Read more

Finding Our Inner Neanderthal: Evolutionary Geneticist Svante Pääbo's DNA Quest

In 2010, Svante Pääbo, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, shook the scientific world with a five-year study that concluded that Neanderthals, who disappeared 30,000 years ago, left a legacy that survives in the DNA of many people today. Pääbo discusses the study and how paleogenetics can deepen our understanding of the long history of our species. YouTube video Watch the video

DNA Day: Inspiring the Future Generation of Scientists

Engaging young students offers a chance to inspire them about scientific concepts and inquiry. On April 25th, NHGRI will celebrate the 12th National DNA Day, which commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNA's double-helical structure in 1953. DNA Day programs, as well other student and teacher activities, bring genomics to the classroom. Read more
