National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
The National Institute on Drug Abuse is offering free genotyping for existing extracted DNA samples from people suffering from substance abuse disorders, who have consented for addiction/and or genetic studies. The proposed samples for genotyping offered by investigators will be selected by administrative review by NIDA staff. The NIDA Center for Genetic Studies at RUDCR will do all the genotyping of samples submitted. These data once cleaned will be submitted into dbGaP, where they will be stored for a 6 month period prior to public data release per the NIH Genomic Data Sharing Policy. During that time submitting investigators will have the chance to analyze their own data. Once the data are released to the public there are no other time restrictions or embargo periods.
