Through this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) seeks to leverage existing biospecimens to increase the representation of racial/ethnic minority individuals in germline genome-wide data repositories with accompanying exposure, phenotype, and outcome data. Funds obtained through these administrative supplements should be used for processing existing samples and analyzing and managing the derived data from understudied racial/ethnic populations studies. These studies will also need to successfully compete for germline genome-wide genotyping services offered by the NIH Center for Inherited Disease Research (CIDR) program through a companion application to PAR-20-230 (Instructions for a CIDR submission for this initiative are found on this page). Data from this NOSI initiative are expected to be broadly shared with the extramural research community. This Notice is a reissuance of NOT-CA-21-041.
