LI-COR Biosciences Offers $1.75 Million in Matching Funds for Undergraduate Genomics Education
Date:9/24/2008

LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- LI-COR(R) Biosciences announces an enhanced matching funds program to support undergraduate hands-on education in genomics. $1.75 million in matching funds is available with LI-COR providing 60% of the funding to each qualifying institution. The Genomics Education Matching Funds (GEMF) program now features a streamlined application process to help colleges acquire LI-COR DNA sequencing systems for use by undergraduate students studying molecular biology and related fields.

"Students who have the hands-on experience using the LI-COR system have a distinct advantage when they seek jobs and admission to post-graduate programs," says Jackie Potts, LI-COR GEMF coordinator. "GEMF-partner schools tell us that integrating the LI-COR system provides a competitive advantage for students and their department, noting that work on the sequencer allows students to be knowledge producers not just knowledge consumers."

More than 200 undergraduate programs are currently benefiting from the GEMF program.

LI-COR genomic analysis systems are used in academic labs worldwide for a variety of research applications including sequencing, microsatellites, AFLP(R), SNP discovery and reverse genetics research.

Complete information on how schools may apply for a grant is available at http://www.licor.com/gemf. Deadline for submission of grant requests is November 7, 2008.
