NIH Awards $15M in H1 2013 to Support Array-Based Research Projects, Platform Development | GenomeWeb

The National Institutes of Health awarded about $15 million during the first six months of this year to support projects that are related to microarray and multiplexing technologies.

In total, 44 grants were identified where the investigators said specifically that they intended to use arrays or develop new multiplexing platforms going forward. Of those 44 grants, 32 were focused on basic research, and plan to use arrays to profile gene, microRNA, and protein expression, as well as to assess DNA methylation and to perform whole-genome genotyping.
