NIAID Clinical Genomics Program Resources

Researchers involved with the NIAID Clinical Genomics Program study many diseases of the immune system that are rare and not well understood but often shed light on basic immune function and more common immune disorders. This research is carried out across multiple labs, disease processes, and with many different tools.

The NIAID Clinical Genomics Program centralizes resources to be used for genomics and related research.
