NHGRI launched the CCDG, which will use genome sequencing to explore the genomic contributions to common diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke and autism. Common diseases affect hundreds of millions of people worldwide. The causes of these diseases can be difficult to decipher because they result from a complex combination of genomic influences and environmental factors. The CCDG represents an important step in the evolution of NHGRI's long-standing, flagship Genome Sequencing Program (GSP). Credit: Ernesto del Aguila III, NHGRI.
