Functional Characterization of Genetic Variants and Interactions: The Genes, Environment and Health Initiative (R21): -Purpose. The National Institute on Drug Abuse on behalf of the NIH Genes, Environment and Health Initiative encourages functional characterization of genetic variants that have been statistically nominated to be associated with a particular outcome through common, complex disease gene discovery approaches, such as genome-wide association studies, candidate gene approaches, or sequencing studies. This FOA supports research relating genetic variation to biological mechanism, or disease causality. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, relatively low throughput approaches (e.g. transgenic mouse approaches) to test some of the most promising variants for changes in function; or exploit high-throughput tests (e.g. yeast, C. elegans, cell culture systems, or computational approaches) to look at different aspects of variant function. -Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the R21 grant mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope, RFA-DA-09-004, that solicits applications under the R03 grant mechanism.
