With this (RFI) Notice, the NIH invites interested and knowledgeable persons to inform NIH about existing and desired approaches for measuring and assessing value of biomedical data repositories. This RFI has implications for “two general categories: 1) Deposition repositories, which support primary research data submitted by the data producers; and 2) Knowledgebases, which provide curated findings derived from the aggregation or analysis of experimental data.” Respondents are encouraged to describe what resources they use and how they use it, and how that community use/importance can be measured.
A full description of the RFI is available at: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-16-133.html
The PGx Tools page provides links to resources that provides links to resources that can interest researchers in the area of pharmacogenomics. Though not exhaustive, the list includes:
The Pharmacogenomics Research Network (PGRN) is bringing together scientists who study the interactions between genomes and drug responses. This symposium, organized by the PGRN and open to all ASHG attendees and others, explores current topics in pharmacogenomics with sessions on innovative approaches for identifying genes that influence drug response, the role of pharmacogenomics in drug discovery, technologies used in pharmacogenomic studies, and the evolution of pharmacogenes.
In addition, there will be an interactive panel discussion with diverse stakeholders on issues affecting the clinical implementation of pharmacogenomic testing. This symposium will enable scientists from multiple disciplines to learn about work at the frontier of pharmacogenomics and identify new opportunities for advancing research in basic and translational pharmacogenomics.
Be sure to tune in for Research In Progress Seminars (RIPS)
RIPS generally are broadcast on the first Friday of each month. All PGRN members are encouraged to attend.
