The Shenzhen Mammoth Public Welfare Foundation, which BGI sponsors, has also raised funding to purchase PCR and automate sample preparation instruments.

The funding comes about three years after Amgen provided the school with $1.5 million for a master's degree program in human genetics and genetic counseling.

The five-year gift will support the building and maintenance of the NYGC's genomics infrastructure to work with its institutional founding members.

Funded by a $120M grant, the planned interdisciplinary School of Data Science will dedicate perhaps a quarter of its resources to bioinformatics-related activities.

The company will donate the Infinium Global Diversity array it developed for the program to the three All of Us genome centers to process up to 1 million samples.

The $10 million donation from Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan should accelerate data sharing and alleviate shortage in bioinformatics expertise.

The money was provided by real estate developer and philanthropist Conrad Prebys and will be used to accelerate the delivery of new treatments to improve human health.

The gift from Dwight Schar will launch a personalized oncology institute at the Inova Center for Personalized Health, part of the Inova Health System.

The Centre for Evolutionary Genomics will train graduate students in genomic techniques, funded by a gift from the Leverhulme Trust's Doctoral Scholarships program.
