EU Grants 2.2M Euro to 3DGenome Research Program

NEW YORK, June 17 (GenomeWeb News) - The European Union has awarded €2.2 million to the group of seven academic institutions behind the 3DGenome research program.


The 3DGenome program is coordinated by Roel van Driel of the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences of the Universityof Amsterdamin The Netherlands. It will use advanced microscopic techniques and data analysis software to establish a three-dimensional map of DNA inside the human cell. This map will then be related to gene regulation patterns.


The funds have been awarded under the four-year EU Sixth Framework program for research and development. Yesterday, the European Commission published the program's third call for research proposals in life sciences, genomics, and biotechnology.
