JGI Issues New Call for Large-Scale Sequencing Proposals

NEW YORK, Dec. 22 (GenomeWeb News) - The US Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute said today that it will begin accepting genome-sequencing proposals for its 2007 Community Sequencing Program.


JGI said it has committed 60 percent of its 33-billion-letter annual sequencing capacity to the next round of projects, with a focus on proposals that will advance the nation's energy security.


The institute will accept letters of intent for new projects until Jan. 13, 2006, here. Applications aligned with the country's energy and environment needs will be asked to develop full proposals due March 3, 2006.
