Gov. Leavitt pauses during State-of-the-State addressExcerpt from Tuesday's State of the State address (Mike Leavitt):

The Thousand Day plan also fostered a new biotechnology/human genetics project called GenData.  GenData is a non-profit enterprise formed by the state, the University of Utah and the Huntsman Cancer Foundation.  It combines the unique genealogical information found in Utah with genetic and medical data contributed by Utah families into a database that will create a scientific treasure used to cure and treat diseases like diabetes and cancer that touch every family.  It will attract venture capital and pharmaceutical and medical research organizations from all over the world.

Many related projects to GenData already exist such as the Breast Cancer Gene database, the Evaluation of a Family History Tool for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention projects (CDC will fund three projects, proposals are due by February 19th), Online Mendelian Inheritance of Man, and GeneCards.

CDC (Office of Genomics and Disease Prevention)  also sponsors HuGE Net, a global collaboration of individuals and organizations who develop and communicate epidemiologic information on the human genome.  Here's an online multimedia introduction to human genome epidemiology.
