The money will be used to accelerate development of Akonni's hands-free, sample-to-answer system with a goal of providing testing to underserved populations.

A three-year grant program will give $1 million next year to support development of widely applicable technologies, including genome sequencing, mass spectrometry, genotyping, and others.

The second phase of the Electronic Medical Health Records and Genomics program will support a range of new studies incorporating EMRs with genome-wide association studies.

To advance its CPTC program, NCI wants networked centers to study protein characterization technologies and cancer biology.

The institute will give $5 million in 2011 for research into how epigenetics affects development of mental disorders.

A multi-institute program aims to fund studies of epigenetic changes caused by or as a consequence of human diseases.

The $1.7 million grant from NHBLI will support development of genotype and phenotype-based indicators and predictors for sudden cardiac death.
