Program Initiatives

Reference Epigenome Mapping Centers

This initiative is being issued as a cooperative agreement (U01) to support reference epigenome production centers that will develop reference epigenomes of a variety of human cells.

Epigenomics of Human Health and Disease

This initiative will support research on fundamental epigenomic changes or mechanisms underlying specific diseases; conditions of development or aging; or response to exposures (physical, chemical, behavioral, and social factors).

Epigenomics Data Analysis and Coordination Center (EDAAC)

This cooperative agreement (U01) will fund the Epigenomics Data Analysis and Coordination Center (EDACC), which will provide data analysis and coordination for all of the Reference Epigenome Mapping Centers, as well as import all other Roadmap Epigenomics Program data generated outside of the mapping centers. In addition, the EDACC will be responsible for coordinating with the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) to develop and implement a data pipeline for transferring and tracking standardized data to NCBI for banking and public utility. This RFA is due to release in Fall 2007, with funding expected to begin in Fall 2008.
