NIH Comparative Genomics Resource (CGR)

Maximizing the impact of eukaryotic research organisms

Comparative genomic analyses are a powerful tool for scientific discovery. CGR is an NIH-funded, multi-year NLM project to establish an ecosystem to facilitate reliable comparative genomics analyses for all eukaryotic organisms in collaboration with the genomics community. The project’s vision is to maximize the biomedical impact of eukaryotic research organisms and their genomic data resources to meet emerging research needs for human health. To achieve this, NCBI will provide high-value data and assorted tools compatible with community-provided resources.
