ParAllele Bioscience Recently Won $660K from Two NIH Grants

NEW YORK, Dec. 29 (GenomeWeb News) - ParAllele Bioscience has won around $660,000 through a pair of recent grants from the US National Institutes of Health, according to the NIH.


The grants, which the NIH said are effective as of Dec. 26, but that ParAllele had not previously disclosed, include:

  • $443,897 to develop a high-throughput genotyping technology; and
  • $214,190 to study variation scanning with mismatch repair detection.


A ParAllele spokesperson told GenomeWebNews today that the first of these grants is to develop "ultra-high-throughput" genotyping technology, though the NIH describes it as "high-throughoput."
