The GEI will have two main components:
- The Genetics Program is a pipeline for analyzing genetic variation in groups of patients with specific illnesses.
- The Exposure Biology Program is an environmental technology development program to produce and validate new methods for monitoring environmental exposures that interact with a genetic variation to result in human diseases.
