Key Dates
Release Date: November 4, 2005
Receipt Date: December 9, 2005

Issued by
National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), (

In a Notice published August 2, 2005 , the NHGRI invited investigators who are working to identify genetic variations causing human Mendelian disorders to provide the NIH with information about the status of their projects ( The NHGRI is particularly interested in cases in which a major roadblock to completing those projects could be overcome by large-scale sequencing, and where the amount of sequencing required would be prohibitive to the individual investigator. Investigators who are not currently in such circumstances, but who work in this area, are also invited to comment.

The purpose of this Notice is to inform potential responders that the expiration date for submitting information about diseases they are interested in has been extended. The new response date is by December 9, 2005. Responses may be sent by email to
