33 million SEK to support and advance large-scale genomic research in Sweden
The SciLifeLab Board has announced its decision on funding 14 projects within the SciLifeLab National Sequencing Projects initiative. The aim of the initiative is to support and advance large-scale genomic research in Sweden within both health and biodiversity by providing sequencing support to scientists through open calls. Thereby supporting them in carrying out competitive international research.
The grants are awarded as a deduction of costs for sample processing and sequencing at the National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) and the Microbial Single Cell Genomics facility. The total sum awarded is 33 million SEK and will result in the sequencing of thousands of genomes within the projects by NGI.
