Centers of Excellence in Genomic Science
â€œThe Human Genome Project (HGP) has produced a wealth of genomic data. The next challenge is to discover and analyze the vast amount of biological information contained within it. The Centers of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS) program supports the formation of multi-investigator, interdisciplinary research teams to develop novel and innovative genomic research projects, using the data sets and technologies developed by the HGP.â€?
â€œCenters of Excellence in Genomic Science Awarded Grants Information – The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) plans to establish a total of about 10 CEGS, at a rate of three to four grants per year during a three-year period.â€?
