Highlights

NHGRI oral history collection features influential genomics researchers 

Genomics History timelineA collection of oral histories released today by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) features candid conversations with pioneering scientists involved in the Human Genome Project and a rare discussion with all three institute directors since the organization was established in 1989. In each oral history, influential scientists offer extensive insight into science and medicine, as well as biographical details and commentary on the inner workings of NHGRI and its foundational initiatives that transformed the way people think about the human genome. 

Rare disease research, DNA Day and feedback for the dbGap

Eric Green This month's The Genomics Landscape takes a look at rare disease research at NHGRI (Rare Disease Research: Not So Rare) and sends out a reminder to celebrate National DNA Day on April 25th by encouraging STEM education and outreach programs to hold local events. Dr. Green also calls attention to a Request for Information (RFI) that asks for feedback on the data-submission and data-access process to help streamline and enhance data management and data sharing.

We need your input: dbGaP Data Submission and Access Process

MelanomaNHGRI believes that broadly sharing research data will result in maximum public benefit, and we're committed to providing researchers with access to genomic data. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Genomic Data Sharing Policy establishes a system to promote data sharing, while also protecting research participants involved in genomics studies. We need your help to improve one of NIH's central data sharing tools for human genomic data: the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes, or dbGaP.
