NHLBI “Grand Opportunity” Exome Sequencing Project (GO-ESP)

NHLBI "Grand Opportunity” Exome Sequencing Project (GO-ESP), exome sequencing of well-phenotyped NHLBI cardiovascular and pulmonary disease cohort, clinical and family studies

The NHLBI “Grand Opportunity” Exome Sequencing Project (GO-ESP), a signature project of the NHLBI Recovery Act investment, was designed to identify genetic variants in coding regions (exons) of the human genome (the “exome”) that are associated with heart, lung and blood diseases. These and related diseases that are of high impact to public health and individuals from diverse racial and ethnic groups will be studied. These data may help researchers understand the causes of disease, contributing to better ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases, as well as determine whether to tailor prevention and treatments to specific populations. This could lead to more effective treatments and reduce the likelihood of side effects.

GO-ESP is comprised of five collaborative components:

HeartGO: data and specimens from a consortium of six NHLBI population study cohorts -- ARIC (Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities), CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults), CHS (Cardiovascular Health Study), FHS (Framingham Heart Study), JHS (Jackson Heart Study), and MESA (Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis).
