Estonian Genome Project s Funding Uncertain

NEW YORK, April 28 (GenomeWeb News) - The Estonian Genome Project has lost its funding beyond the end of the year, according to news reports.


California-based EGeen, the project's sponsor, provided 1.6 million in early April, but is not planning to grant further funding unless a dispute over the project's direction is resolved, according to The Scientist. The current funding would only keep the project going until November.


The Estonian government granted the project 225,000 in January when the dispute erupted.
