BETHESDA, Md--The National Center for Human Genome Research at the NIH has announced six research grants that are expected to propel forward the final phase of the Human Genome Project, headed by Dr. Francis Collins.

The grants, ranging from $1 million to $6.7 million a year for up to 3 years, are meant to accelerate the process of automated DNA sequencing. The recipient institutions are The Institute for Genomic Research; Baylor College of Medicine; the Whitehead Institute-MIT Genome Center; Stanford University; University of Washington, Seattle; and Washington University.

A requirement of the awards is that the researchers release their new sequencing data quickly to the scientific community, including reports on a World Wide Web page.
