The ENCODE Consortium is composed primarily of scientists
funded under RFAs released by NHGRI. Other participants
have been identified and brought into the Consortium as
appropriate. The Consortium is open to any investigator
willing to abide by the criteria for participation
established for the ENCODE Project by NHGRI. The ENCODE
External Consultants Panel oversees the activities of the
Consortium and provides advice and feedback on the
Consortium's goals, progress and membership.
Those interested in applying for membership to the ENCODE
Consortium should review the criteria for participation and
contact the ENCODE program directors at NHGRI,
Elise Feingold, Ph.D., or
Peter Good, Ph.D.
