Revolutionary Genome Sequencing Technologies - The $1000 Genome - SBIR (R43/R44): This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant applications from small business concerns (SBCs) to develop novel technologies that will enable extremely low-cost genomic DNA sequencing. Current technologies are able to produce the sequence of a mammalian-sized genome of the desired data quality for $10 to $50 million; the goal of this initiative is to reduce costs by at least four orders of magnitude, so that a mammalian-sized genome could be sequenced for approximately $1000. Substantial fundamental research is needed to develop the scientific and technological knowledge underpinning such a major advance. Therefore, it is anticipated that the long-term goals of this Request for Applications (RFA) funding opportunity may be achieved in ten years.
