GENEWIZ is proud to help drive science forward through funding future genomic breakthroughs with the 2021 Low-Pass Whole Genome Sequencing Grant. This grant will allow one lucky researcher to witness the power of low-pass whole genome sequencing and uncover new, exciting answers to biological questions for your population genomics research!

Submit your application below describing how you will use low-pass whole genome sequencing to drive new discoveries in your research for a chance to win services worth up to $10,000 USD (or local currency equivalent)*. Following the entry period, one winner will be selected from all qualified applicants by a panel of scientific experts.

Apply by June 30, 2021 for consideration.

Illumina_Grant_Callout_Graphic_Option1-1A cost-effective alternative to genotyping arrays, low-pass whole genome sequencing (LP-WGS) enables the discovery of new, rare variants with higher statistical power and magnitude of data. From complex-trait association studies to calculation of genome-wide polygenic risk scores, low-pass whole genome sequencing can be used in multiple ways to address questions involving statistical and population genomics.
