Revolutionary Genome Sequencing Technologies – The $1000 Genome (R01)

Revolutionary Genome Sequencing Technologies – The $1000 Genome (R01)

Purpose: The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) solicits R01 grant applications to develop novel technologies that will enable extremely low-cost, high quality DNA sequencing. The goal of this initiative is to reduce the cost of sequencing a mammalian-sized genome to approximately $1000. Applicants may propose to develop full-scale sequencing systems or to investigate challenges underlying key system components. Exploration of methods other than those currently being pursued as potential $1,000 genome technologies are particularly encouraged. High-risk/high-payoff proposals are appropriate to achieve the goals of this FOA by approximately 2014
