NHGRI Issues $32 million in grants toward personal genomics

Today the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) awarded $32 million toward innovative genome sequencing technologies that promise to bring down the cost of a human genome sequence to $1000.  In October of last year, the NHGRI awarded $40 million in grants for sequencing innovations that promise to bring down the cost of a human genome to $100,000 in the near-term.
