Expand existing large scale, open-science molecular profiling efforts by:
- Increasing the bandwidth for the generation and analysis of high-quality molecular data (genetics and epigenetics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, glycomics, exposome, etc.) from human tissues and cell lines.
- Investing in the development of methods for multi-scale modeling across -omics data-types.
- Ensuring that diverse cohorts and special populations are included and prioritized in these efforts.
Provide supplemental funding to at least 6 existing projects/programs that are generating high-dimensional on human aging cohorts to close key molecular data gaps, including molecular profiling for post-translational modification, methods development for multi-scale modeling, and inclusion of samples from diverse cohorts and special populations.
Ensure that existing and newly funding projects continue to operate under open science principles.
