Purpose. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) encourages grant applications under this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to develop and implement a Knowledge Base (KB) and Coordinating Center for the Consortium of Cross Organ Mechanism-Associated Phenotypes for Genetic Analyses of Heart, Lung, Blood, and Sleep Diseases (MAPGen for HLBS). This is one of two FOAs for the MAPGen program. The other FOA is for the Research Centers (RCs) of MAPGen and described separately in RFA-HL-11-005. The MAPGenKB will provide logistical and informatics support for the research across all RCs in the MAPGen consortium and synthesize the knowledge from the datasets of the RCs and other sources that are relevant to the goals of the MAPGen consortium. The data and tools generated from this consortium will be made available to the broad scientific community.
