ENGAGE

European Network for Genetic and Genomic Epidemiology

Description

The primary aim of ENGAGE is to translate genetic and phenotypic data emerging from large-scale research studies in genetic and genomic epidemiology for future clinical advances. Early studies will concentrate on metabolic and cardiovascular phenotypes. The DTR is part of this large collaborative project, coordinated by University of Helsinki, which will be integrating data from over 80,000 genomewide association scans. The DTR will provide clinical, biochemical and genetic data from over 6000 UK twins.

DTR Role

Contributing clinical, biochemical, transcriptomic and genetic data from over 6000 twins as well as providing expertise in the genetic and epidemiological analyses.

Funding:

The European Union FP7 programme
