Tell NIH your opinions on Genetic Testing Registry

This is just a quick post to let you know that NIH has opened a 30 day period for commenting on its plan to develop a Genetic Testing Registry. According to the May 28th NIH notice, there is 30 days to comment on the following:

The National Institutes of Health, an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is seeking input and feedback on its plan to develop the Genetic Testing Registry (GTR); a centralized public resource that will provide information about the availability, scientific basis, and usefulness of genetic tests. Submission of test information to the GTR will be voluntary, and the NIH expects to receive wide interest and participation from researchers, test developers, and manufacturers.

I saw this go by in an article in today’s GenomeWeb Daily News. Here’s a link directly to the NIH notice.
