Genia Technologies, Columbia University, and Harvard University Awarded $5.25 Million Grant from NIH to Accelerate the Development of NanoTag DNA Sequencing Technology
Date:9/11/2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Genia Technologies, Inc. today announced that the company, as part of a research consortium with Columbia University and Harvard Medical School, received a Revolutionary Genome Sequencing Technologies – The $1,000 Genome grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  The grant - $5.25 million for three years - will be used in collaboration with investigators at Columbia and Harvard to further develop Genia's nanopore-based DNA sequencing platform that allows for single molecule, electrical, real-time analysis.  This research consortium is led by Dr. Jingyue Ju, the Samuel Ruben-Peter G. Viele Professor of Engineering at Columbia's School of Engineering and Applied Science. 

Columbia, Harvard, and Genia were jointly awarded the largest grant from the latest NHGRI initiative, which distributed approximately $17 million under its Advanced DNA Sequencing Technology program to eight research teams developing technology aimed at driving down the cost of DNA sequencing.  The majority of the funded projects, five of eight, focus on methods and technology related to nanopore-based sequencing.

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.  Our versatile nanopore-based platform, which combines proprietary integrated circuits and the NanoTag chemistry, is designed to move sequencing into the clinic by enabling real-time detection with limited sample preparation and no amplification to produce faster and more accurate results."
