Kids First has established and continues to develop a Data Resource including a large collection of curated genomic and phenotypic data from childhood cancer and structural birth defects cohorts and a central portal where these data and analysis tools are accessible to the research community. This FOA is intended to engage experts in a variety of activities that will enhance the utility of childhood cancer and/or structural birth defects genomic datasets generated by the Kids First program and/or associated phenotypic datasets and resources. These activities should strengthen future analyses of Kids First datasets by the broader researcher community with the ultimate goal of improving diagnostic capabilities and therapies for children and their families affected by these conditions.
