NEW YORK, Feb. 24 (GenomeWeb News) - Agencourt Bioscience yesterday said it established a post-baccalaureate training program for underrepresented minorities in genome sciences.
The company said it launched the two-year program as part of the three-year, $28 million NHGRI Large-Scale Sequencing Center award it received in November 2003.
Participants in the program will work with scientists at Agencourt and will also carry out coursework at "a variety of local universities," the Beverly-Mass.-based company said.
Applications will be accepted until March 15, and the program will begin in July.
A company spokeswoman said that there are three positions open under the program. Further information is available here.
