GenomeQuest to Award Software to Clinical Labs Transitioning to Next-Gen Sequencing

Premium

GenomeQuest is sponsoring an award program that will provide bioinformatics support to clinical labs that want to transition to next-generation sequencing.

The company said it will award the grants to five labs who are looking to consolidate multiple Sanger-based diagnostic tests into a single NGS-based test.

Labs that are awarded the grants, which the company values at $20,000 each, will receive all the software, annotation data, and compute infrastructure required to process and store patient sequence data, produce tailored diagnostic reports, and perform follow-up research on aggregated results, according to the company.

To qualify for the grant, labs must operate a medical diagnostic lab that is listed under the National Center for Biotechnology Information's GeneTests website and also be committed to transitioning to NGS-based testing.

Applications are due Dec. 1 and the awards will be announced Dec. 15. Further information about the program is available on GenomeQuest's website.
