Abstract

Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.

PI Contribution This work requires extensive collaborations with scientists, journal editors and databases. Essential collaborations are with the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), with the mouse database (MGD), with journals such Genomics and with sequencing centres such as the Sanger Centre with OMIM and with the EBI. Letters from these collaborators are attached. Many other collaborators such as: GENECARDS, SWISSPROT, GENATLAS, GDB. Provide links to our web pages as we also provide links to theirs.
Impact During the five years of the project there has been great increase in interactions collaborations and in addition to those listed above; this has included every sequencing centre contributing to the human genome sequence and other annotators, for example H-Invitational and Riken in Japan, as well as many more authors and curators of smaller locus-specific or disorder-specific databases. Also Wellcome Trust funded collaboration with the Mouse Genome Informatics group at Bar Harbor. Much of this has been possible because of the bioinformatician employed on the MRC grant.
