NEW YORK, Feb. 13 - Applied Biosystems announced today a grant program in which it will award the winner up to $250,000 in SNP genotyping products.
The company is welcoming grant proposals from individuals, institutions, and companies that are involved in SNP genotyping.
The winning recipient, who will be selected from among proposals by an as-yet unnamed panel of judges from Applied Biosystems and elsewhere, will be able to choose among products in the company's SNP Assays on Demand, and its SNP-based sequence detection systems that use the fluorogenic 5' nuclease assay with TaqMan, the company said.
The company is providing application forms at http://www.allsnps.com. The deadline for submission is April 20, and the company plans to announce the winner in mid-May.
