$2.18 Million Goes Toward DNA Sequencing

Abstract:

UC Irvine's Henry Samueli School of Engineering has been granted $2.18 million to explore the applications of advancements in nanotechnology toward DNA sequencing. The goal is to create a faster and less expensive method of sequencing DNA by combining new nano-technological developments with current DNA sequencing methods.


The three-year grant was awarded as part of a $15 million initiative by the National Human Genome Research Institute. As leader of the Human Genome Project for the National Institutes of Health, which culminated in the finding of the full human genome sequence in April 2003, NHGRI is now advocating the next step in genome research aimed at improving healthcare and fighting disease.
