The Center for Inherited Disease Research (CIDR), established in 1996, provides high quality next generation sequencing and genotyping services and statistical genetics consultation to investigators working to discover genes that contribute to common disease.
The CIDR facility is supported through multiple sources. The largest source of support is a 5-year, $115 million federal contract (number HHSN268200782096C) funded by 14 NIH Institutes: NHGRI, NCI, NEI, NIA, NIAAA, NIAMS, NICHD, NIDA, NIDCD, NIDCR, NIDDK, NIEHS, NIMH, and NINDS. Other sources include multiple NHGRI-led Genome-Wide Association Study Consortia such as Gene Environment Association Studies (GENEVA), electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) and Genomics and Randomized Trials Network (GARNET).
The JHU SNP Center and the High Throughput Sequencing Center are part of the CIDR facility and offer fee-for-service genotyping and sequencing services.
