Intel awarded NIH grant

Intel awarded NIH grant to develop electronic DNA sequencing technology.
The National Institutes of Health - short NIH - has awarded Intel a research grant of USD 5 million together with 3 other pioneer institutions (University of Twente, Columbia University and Pacific Biosciences) to develop new DNA sequencing technology. DNA sequencing is a process of decoding the order and identity of every base. Genomic sequencing information is becoming more and more important in targeted medicine including disease prevention and treatment. The newly awarded 4 year research grant is focused on single molecule, real-time electronic DNA sequencing technology development that should help reduce cost, increase speed and accuracy associated with current platforms, the chip company states.
