Purpose

The All of Us Research Program, part of the National Institutes of Health, seeks applications for Genome Centers to generate genomic data as part of the All of UsResearch Program, a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health.

The All of Us Research Program Genome Centers will be funded to generate and analyze both genotyping and whole genome sequencing data from biospecimens from this cohort. These Centers also will operate an analysis workflow resulting in high-confidence calling of all variant types (single nucleotide variants, small insertions/deletions, larger structural variants including copy number variations) and establish a robust pipeline to securely transfer data to the All of Us Data and Research Center.
