I think there's nothing like the word 'free' that gets researchers to stand up and listen ;p
The 2010 KnomeDISCOVERY Research Awards
Knome invites researchers to apply for free sequencing and analysis of human exomes
Knome announces the launch of the KnomeDISCOVERY Research Awards, designed to spur novel discoveries by researchers working at the nexus of genomics and human health. Given annually, the KnomeDISCOVERY Research Awards will fund innovative projects that help reveal the genetic underpinnings of disease.
This year, Knome will award comprehensive sequencing and discovery-supportive analysis of a total of six (6) human exomes. These services will be distributed among three winning biomedical research groups, each of whom will use the award to study a pair of human exomes of their choice in order to answer a compelling biological question.
