NHGRI Awards Regulome $5.3M for ENCODE Project

NEW YORK, Oct. 10 (GenomeWeb News) -   Regulome, of Seattle, has secured a $5.3 million in funding from the National Human Genome Research Institute, the company said late Thursday. Both grants are part of NHGRI's Encyclopedia of DNA Elements project, also called ENCODE.

 

Under the project, Regulome will be collaborating with researchers at the University of Washington to apply its technology to the localization and analysis of sequence that regulates gene expression, within a larger region of 30 million base pairs of the genome.

 

If the pilot phase of the project succeeds, the partners will examine the entire genome, Regulome said.
