Genome Assembly Matching Funds Grant

Put those EOY Funds to good use and enhance your research!

Are you studying an organism that doesn’t have a genome assembly? Or do you have a genome that you would like to get to whole chromosomes? This grant will make it easier for you to get the genome assembly you need to drive your research in 2018.


Recipients will receive a matching funds grant of up to $10,000 USD for a de novo genome assembly or $7,500 USD for a scaffolding project from Dovetail Genomics; the leading service provider of genome assemblies.


To enter, simply fill out and submit the short application form.


At Dovetail, we have been dramatically improving both the contiguity and accuracy of genome assemblies for a wide range of organisms, including plants, mammals, fish, reptiles, mollusks, insects and many more and we want to make sure your research can benefit from our expertise!


**Extended entry time**

Your entry must be received before 11:59 PM Eastern Time (ET), November 22, 2017 and grant recipients will be notified by November 27, 2017.


We look forward to receiving your application!
