What is it about ?

" ENGAGE aims to translate the wealth of data emerging from large-scale research in genetic and genomic epidemiology from European (and other) population cohorts into information relevant to future clinical applications. The concept of ENGAGE is to enable European researchers to identify large numbers of novel susceptibility genes that influence metabolic, behavioural and cardiovascular traits, and to study the interactions between genes and life style factors "

" The GEN2PHEN project aims to unify human and model organism genetic variation databases towards increasingly holistic views into Genotype-To-Phenotype (G2P) data, and to link this system into other biomedical knowledge sources via genome browser functionality. "

" TECHGENE is a 7th Framework Program (FP7) project in the theme "Health" and activity "High throughput diagnostics in individual patients for genetic diseases with heterogeneous clinical presentation". The project is a so called "Small or medium-scale focused research project (STREP)" and involves a collaboration between 12 partners from 9 different countries. It receives funding from the European Union. TECHGENE has started on the first of February 2009 and will run for three years. "
