  1. 3: Computational Biology

    Release Date: 01-24-2011Open Date: 03-05-2011Due Date: 01-08-2012Close Date: 01-08-2012

    The NHGRI has supported the generation of many large-scale genomic data sets such as genome sequence, haplotype maps, transcriptome measurements, protein interactions, and functional elements. NHGRI encourages the development of new computational methods and tools to analyze these and other large datasets, and to extract useful biological information from them. Where possible, exis ...

  2. 4: Population Genomics

    Release Date: 01-24-2011Open Date: 03-05-2011Due Date: 01-08-2012Close Date: 01-08-2012

    This is an emerging discipline that applies genomic technologies, such as genome-wide association testing and sequencing, to population studies to identify gene regions, genes, or variants affecting common etiologically complex conditions and predict individual risk. It also investigates the value of applying genomic methods in clinical care for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of complex ...

  5. 1: Occupational Traumatic Injuries from Motor Vehicle Crashes and Incidents

    Release Date: 01-24-2011Open Date: 03-05-2011Due Date: 01-08-2012Close Date: 01-08-2012

    Background: The risk of roadway crashes and incidents associated with on-the-job operation of motor vehicles affects millions of U.S. workers. Motor vehicle-related incidents are consistently the leading cause of work-related fatalities in the United States. Of approximately 5,700 fatalities annually reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 35% are associated with motor ...

  6. 2: Control Technology and Personal Protective Equipment

    Release Date: 01-24-2011Open Date: 03-05-2011Due Date: 01-08-2012Close Date: 01-08-2012

    Engineering controls, administrative policies, and personal protective equipment are needed to manage exposures to occupational hazards. Engineering controls include substitution of a safe material for a hazardous one, design changes to equipment, or modification of work methods to eliminate or reduce hazards. Changes in work practices and management policies and training programs ...

  7. 3: Exposure Assessment Methods

    Release Date: 01-24-2011Open Date: 03-05-2011Due Date: 01-08-2012Close Date: 01-08-2012

    Exposure assessment is a multi-disciplinary field central to deciding whether and how to use resources for reducing workplace exposures, and to defining exposure-response relationships in epidemiologic studies. Rapid, inexpensive measurement tools and improved data analysis methods are needed for the collection of adequate exposure data and for effective intervention. At least thre ...

  9. 5: Surveillance Research Methods

    Release Date: 01-24-2011Open Date: 03-05-2011Due Date: 01-08-2012Close Date: 01-08-2012

    Surveillance systems describe where occupational hazards, injuries, or illnesses are found, how frequently they are found, whether they are increasing or decreasing, and whether prevention efforts have been effective. The public health community relies on surveillance information to set research and prevention priorities, but critical gaps in current systems limit their usefulness. ...
