NIDCR Small Research Grant for Data Analysis and Statistical Methodology: Extension to Genome-wide Data

Translational Genomics Research Branch
Division of Extramural Research


OBJECTIVE

The concept “NIDCR Small Research Grant for Data Analysis and Statistical Methodology” was reviewed and approved by NIDCR’s Advisory Council in January 2004. It was designed to provide investigators with the support necessary to conduct secondary data analyses utilizing existing database resources and assist those who wish to use existing oral health data to develop statistical methodology appropriate for analyzing oral health data. The purpose of this extension is to highlight the availability of genome-wide data for craniofacial and dental conditions, and to provide support to conduct analyses or to use such data to develop statistical methodology for genome-wide analyses of oral health data.

BACKGROUND

NIDCR is supporting genome-wide association studies in dental caries and oral clefts. These data will be available through NIH’s database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) to qualified researchers for specific research purposes. Additional genome-wide data, and follow-up genetic and functional data, may be available in the near future. Extending this concept specifically to genome-wide data and follow-up data will highlight the availability of such data, provide support for analyses or statistical methods development, and may attract new investigators to conditions within NIDCR’s mission.
