NIH Genes and Environment Initiative (GEI)
The NIH has identified the Genome Wide Association component of GEI as a community resource project. As such, the program aims to function openly by making all data available to the scientific community in a timely manner prior to publication, with suitable restrictions for protection of human research subjects. It is expected that NIH will establish a common data release policy for GWA studies prior to the anticipated award date for the GEI-GWA Program, and that all awardees will agree to abide by that policy; see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-06-094.html and http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-06-071.html.
