The Genome Sequencing Program Analysis Centers (GSPACs) were funded in 2016 to harmonize, access, and analyze the data produced by the sequencing centers. The GSPACs undertake novel, investigator-initiated computational analyses on GSP data and develop methods to discover variants underlying common, complex, and Mendelian diseases.
The currently funded centers are:
- Harvard University School of Public Health
- Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
- A cross-institutional center at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Stanford School of Medicine, and University of California at San Francisco School of Pharmacy
More information on the GSPACs, including publications, can be found on the Coordinating Center's website: http://gspac.rutgers.edu/.
The GSPACs work closely with NHLBI's Trans-omics for Precision Medicine Program to harmonize joint variant calls and analyses, functional annotations, and phenotypic information.
