By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Complete Genomics today announced a new cancer research grant program.

The Mountain View, Calif.-based sequencing services firm said that it will award four entries, two from the US and two from Europe, with grants. Winners will receive complete human genome sequencing of eight genomes, the firm said.

Complete Genomics said that it is accepting grant applications until July 29, and will notify winners by Aug. 12. It added that grant winners will need to submit their samples by Sept. 16, and all applicants will be eligible for a discount on their next complete human genome sequencing project.
