NHGRI supports sequencing for $1,000 genome
September 2008
SHARING OPTIONS:

BETHESDA, Md.—The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) plans to support a number of researchers under its Revolutionary Genome Sequencing Technologies grant program, focusing on technologies and methods that can help to bring the cost of sequencing a mammalian-sized genome down to around $1,000 by around the year 2014.

Under the umbrella of the Revolutionary Genome Sequencing Technologies program, NHGRI will support high-risk, high-reward research into full-scale sequencing systems, system components or methods different than those currently being pursued. One of the four grant programs under the umbrella could grant as much as $5 million in fiscal 2009 to several awardees. A parallel grant program would give up to $2 million over three years to several grantees. A Small Business Innovation Research Grant from NHGRI will grant small businesses up to $3.6 million in fiscal 2009 to propose novel technologies to bring down the cost of sequencing. A parallel Small Business Technology Transfer program will spend up to $2 million in fiscal 2009 to support small businesses investigating the development of new sequencing methods. DDN
