Ingenuity Systems launched this week, a Grant Program encouraging researchers in the Life Sciences to submit proposals to receive either a limited IPA license, sample(s) analysis using Variant Analysis or both. The deadline to apply is March 4, 2013 11:59PM PST.
Researchers must submit a proposal outlining the goals of their project as it related to their specific research needs. Ingenuity Systems will award proposals that are focused on the analysis and interpretation of ‘omics data. For Variant Analysis, the proposals should focus on DNA sequencing interpretation base on human disease studies. Click here for more information on Variant Analysis. For IPA, the proposals should focus on identifying and validating upstream regulators and/or the use of mechanistic networks. Click here for more information about IPA. To enter for a chance to win both Variant Analysis sample(s) analysis and a limited license for IPA, proposals should focuses on an application or data set that leverages both Variant Analysis and IPA.
Proposals will be evaluated by a group of internal scientists from Ingenuity Systems as well as a distinguished panel of renowned scientists and industry thought leaders. Winners will be announced at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) conference April 6-10, 2013 in Washington, DC.
