Implicating Noncoding RNAs in the Genetics of Mental Disorders (3 Opportunities)

Submission Date: November 20, 2007

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to invite applications that investigate the role of microRNAs and other noncoding RNAs in the etiology of mental disorders. The data generated by this effort will contribute to the disaggregation of the molecular machinery underlying mental disorders by integrating sequence specific modulators of post-transcriptional gene expression into a theoretical framework of disease pathophysiology, with the aim of rapid, widespread sharing of the resulting data to accelerate genetic analysis of human diseases.
