Metadata[+] Show full item record
This document was prepared as part of MU's CI Council process for updating the campus plan for research cyberinfrastructure by this group: Bob Schnabel, Scott Givan, Alan Marshall, Elizabeth (Libby) King, Tim Middelkoop and Diane Oerly. This brief document is intended to accompany the 32-page detailed analysis of the impact of high-throughput sequencing on MU research capacities. As that report documents, MU's 2005 investment ($231,100 cost share) in next-generation sequencing has been returned many-fold. Within ten years, MU researchers have been awarded a total of 66 grants involving sequencing, totaling $87.5 million ($7.6 million directly attributable to sequence data generation and analysis) plus, another $7.9 million in grant funding proposals are pending or submitted.
