Description:The National Human Genome Research Institute will issue multiple FOAs to fund a Human Genome Reference Program that is intended to replace and update its current commitment to activities now undertaken by the Genome Reference Consortium (GRC). The GRC provides a resource used by essentially all researchers who need to align and read-map experimental or patient genome sequence data. It also serves as a consensus coordinate system for reporting results. The GRC improves the reference, curates and releases updates and new reference builds, develops representations and alignment tools so that the community can use the reference and alternative haplotype information within it, resolves error reports from the community, and performs outreach. The GRC operates as an international consortium, with support provided by NHGRI, as well as the Wellcome Trust (funding the Sanger Center and the European Bioinformatics Institute) and the National Center for Biotechnology Information. The FOA is expected to be published in winter 2018 with an expected application due date in winter 2019. This FOA will utilize the U41 activity code. Details of the planned FOA are provided below.
