More information

Project name Genome Diversity Project
Area drug discovery
Purpose

This project is being undertaken to collect genetic polymorphism information relating to model diseases (such as autoimmune diseases, diabetes, eating disorders, cancer, etc.). It also aims to develop a technique to associate disease-related or drug sensitive genes with the differences in their expression, for example, why some people have a particular medical condition such as an allergy and others do not. The results will be used to develop analysis technology and create a useful database. (Ref. http://www.nedo.go.jp/kankobutsu/pamphlets/kouhou/outline2005.pdf (P. 15))1
