Stefan Roever, CEO of Genia commented, "Genia is very honored to be included in this grant from the NHGRI
, and we look forward to continued collaboration with the researchers at Columbia and Harvard.
Collins' 15-year tenure at the institute, given that initially he was brought to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to lead the Human Genome Project, the core activity on which the NHGRI
was founded, and which led to the need for protection from genetic discrimination.
is one of the 27 institutes and centers at the National Institutes of Health.
Green, 42, came to NHGRI
in 1994 and was appointed the chief of the Genome Technology Branch in 1996.

The purpose of the NHGRI
grant program is to significantly reduce the cost of genome sequencing while improving both accuracy and speed, while significantly reducing the cost of sequencing a genome.
White Paper #4: The Future of Genome Sequencing
DISPUTED TENREC Among the nine mammals a added in August to the list of NHGRI
sequencing targets, the least familiar is probably the lesser hedgehog tenrec (Echinops telfairi).
The award to Professor Mark Akeson and his collaborators is part of the NHGRI
"$1,000 genome" technology programme, designed to reduce dramatically the cost of DNA sequencing and broaden the applications of genomic information in medical research and health care.
Using Isilon's X-Series, featuring the OneFS operating system, NHGRI
has added to its downstream genomic analysis workflow a single, high-performance, shared storage resource, simplifying data management to improve research productivity.

program directors in charge of the ENCODE project.
The scientists making the selection clambered all over the tree of life, looking for lineages near dramatic branching points, according to Adam Felsenfeld, a biologist at NHGRI
in Bethesda, Md.
