PsychENCODE Consortium

PsychENCODE Consortium

The PsychENCODE program is funded by the NIMH with the goal of accelerating discovery of non-coding functional genomic elements in human brain, and elucidating their role in the molecular pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders. The Consortium investigators are producing a public resource of multi-dimensional genomic data using unbiased genome-wide approaches on tissue and cell-type specific samples from approximately 1000 phenotypically well-characterized healthy and diseased human post-mortem brains. The Consortium is also sharing data from functional characterization of disease-associated regulatory elements and variants in in-vitro and in-vivo model systems. Please see the PsychENCODE Knowledge Portal for information about the current and upcoming data releases.
