RFI: Whole Genome Sequencing, Data Analysis, Storage and Annotation

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke is considering how next-generation genome sequencing (NGS) will be applied in studies of neurological disorders, and is asking researchers in this area for information about how they plan to use the latest sequencing tools and genomic data in their work.

To find out how researchers aim to use next-gen whole genome sequencing (WGS), and what the needs are for sequencing, data storage, analysis, and annotation services, NINDS has released a new request for information seeking feedback from the extramural research community.

NINDS will use this feedback to inform and complement its efforts to assess the current and future whole genome sequencing needs of researchers studying a wide range of neurologic disease, and conducting basic research into the nervous system, the genetics of the brain, cognition, brain plasticity, neural signaling, learning, memory, motor control, and other areas.
