BETHESDA, Md.--The US National Human Genome Research Institute announced that money is available to support the advanced development of methods, hardware, and software technologies for genomic research with an emphasis on sequencing technologies. The institute expects to be able to fund the program with $5 million-$10 million in fiscal year 1999, and with an additional $10 million in each of the next two fiscal years. It will address technologies for which proof of principle has been demonstrated but for which additional support is needed in order to develop robust, efficient tools for use in publicly supported high-throughput genomics laboratories. Grant applications are now being accepted. Information is available at http://www.nhgri.nih.gov/Grant_info/funding/research/advtech.html.
