[Source: GenomeWeb News] – The National Human Genome Research Institute has awarded $18 million in new grants to 10 scientists who are developing next-generation sequencing technologies such as polony sequencing, microfluidics, nanopores, single-molecule sequencing, arrays, and others, NHGRI said today.

The Revolutionary Genome Sequencing Technologies grants are aimed at funding new technologies that will lower the cost and quicken the speed of DNA sequencing so that these tools can be used in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, as well as in biomedical research.
