The database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGAP), Mike Feolo
Biography: Michael Feolo is a staff scientist at the NIH’s National Center for Biotechnology Information, and since 2007 has been the team lead for the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP). The dbGaP is a database designed to allow researchers public access to questionnaires, protocols, methods, phenotypes, genotypes and the results of association and linkage analyses in whole genome case/control and longitudinal studies of heritable disease. Since 2005, Michael is also team lead for the dbMHC, database, a web interface and permanent public archive of genotype, phenotype, typing kit, and clinical outcome data concerning the variations in the HLA genes located in a region on human chromosome 6 known as the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC). Prior to leading the dbGaP team, 2000-2007, Michael worked on developing dbSNP, NCBI’s database of genetic variation. During this time, Michael participated as a member of the International HapMap planning and analysis committees and coordinated the upload of genotype data from the project to the dbSNP. Michael received a BS in Molecular Biology, 1996, and MS in Medical Informatics, 1999, from the University of Utah, Department of Biomedical Informatics.
Synopsis: The database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) was developed to archive and distribute the data and results from studies that have investigated the interaction of genotype and phenotype in Humans.
