Six new grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will support researchers to develop new computational approaches for searching among millions of genomic variants to find those that make a difference in disease susceptibility or in other traits. The awards are for three years each and total approximately $13 million, pending the availability of funds, NIH announced in a Sept. 21, 2015 press release. The awards are administered by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and the National Cancer Institute, both parts of NIH.
