Cordis - An information space for European Research and Development (R&D) and exploitation of European R&D results
Cordis FP 6 - Coordination of Research Activities
Cordis FP 7 - The Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) bundles all research-related EU initiatives together under a common roof. The broad objectives of FP7 have been grouped into four categories: Cooperation, Ideas, People and Capacities. For each type of objective, there is a specific programme corresponding to the main areas of EU research policy. All specific programmes work together to promote and encourage the creation of European poles of (scientific) excellence. Find a call

Gene-Talk is a web-based expert network and database for sequence variants. Especially rare sequence variants (incidental findings, with unknown medical relevance) can be annotated by users that are looking for a second patient with the same variant. GeneTalk offers also bioinformatic tools for filtering variant call files (*.vcf) from next generation sequencing testing and reduce the amount of data when searching for disease causing mutations. For diagnosis and interpretation of the data users can communicate, share data, and provide expertise to others via the platform.
