NHGRI Genome Sequencing Program
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) Genome Sequencing Program (GSP) uses genome sequencing to identify genes and genomic variants underlying human inherited disease across its full spectrum, including rare diseases likely to be due to rare variants with strong effects (Mendelian), and common genetically complex diseases that are caused by many variants. Novel methods, tools, and knowledge gained through the GSP will be rapidly shared to enhance the ability of the community to pursue other human inherited diseases.
Current components of the GSP are the Centers for Mendelian Genomics (CMG) and the Centers for Common Disease Genomics (CCDG), with scientific and logistical support provided by the GSP Coordinating Center. GSP Analysis Centers (GSPAC) will come online in Spring 2016.
