Near-Term Technology Development for Genome Sequencing (R01): The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) solicits grant applications to develop novel technologies that will substantially reduce the cost of genomic DNA sequencing. Current technologies are able to produce the sequence of a mammalian-sized genome of the desired data quality for $5 to $10 million; the goal of this initiative is to reduce costs by at least two orders of magnitude. As some technologies that have potential to achieve this goal are already in or near the commercial market, applications to this FOA will need to show clear advantage over current and emerging technologies. Applicants may propose to develop full-scale sequencing systems, or to investigate key components of such systems. Such independent proposals are an important path for pursuing novel, high risk/high pay-off ideas. Contingent upon the availability of funds and the receipt of a sufficient number of meritorious applications, the NHGRI may make 2-7 awards and may award $4 million in response to this FOA.
