Financed with 500,000 Euros, its activity is organized around various work packages (genomic scan analysis, bioinformatics, rare diseases, etc.). In GEMSTONE 24 countries participate and is coordinated by a steering committee of which Dr. José A. Riancho, IDIVAL researcher of the Mineral and Lipid Metabolism Group is part.
