Call for Collaboration - Type II Diabetes  

A consortium of groups mapping genes for type 2 diabetes is being formed to carry out a joint analysis of their linkage data. Because of a number of interesting findings both published and not yet published, the Consortium initially will focus on chromosome 20. Participating groups will provide relevant phenotype information, and genotype information on a framework map of chromosome 20 markers and on other chromosome 20 marker they may already have typed.
