Brief Description: The NIH is coordinating efforts for establishing a Developmental Genotype-Tissue Expression (dGTEx) project, to catalog and analyze transcriptional profiles from a wide variety of tissues obtained from neonates, children, and adolescents in a post-mortem setting. The purpose of this funding opportunity is for support of a Biospecimen Procurement Center (BPC) to enroll suitable pediatric donors and provide high quality tissue samples for analyses to the Laboratory, Data Analysis, and Coordinating Center (LDACC). The BPC will work closely with the LDACC to optimize tissue collection, preservation and transfer of specimens.
