NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Human Genome Research Institute has awarded eleven grants worth a total of more than $13 million to develop technologies that will lower the cost of DNA sequencing.
 
The agency has a near-term goal of lowering the costs of sequencing a mammalian-sized genome to $100,000, and to eventually cut the cost of whole-genome sequencing to $1,000 or less. Lowering the cost will make genome sequencing possible as part of routine medical care, NHGRI said.
