Terms and Conditions

  • The application is valid from 9 August 2021 to 31 October 2021.
  • The researcher may submit one or more research projects.
  • Additional details, sequencing/analysis report and/or sample data would be required from shortlisted applicants for further evaluation.
  • Successful applicants have to provide relevant documents (e.g. project information, proposal, manuscript draft, sequencing/analysis report, files or datasets) to kickstart the drafting of the work scope.
  • Codon Genomics’s decision is final and may not be subject to any discussions.
  • A collaboration agreement will be prepared and signed between Codon Genomics and successful applicants.
  • Successful applicants will be entitled to grants with one or more CoGen Insight Packages and/or a maximum of 10 Man-days of data science analysis under the Data Ignite program.
  • The fee for the work will be waived from the range of 50% (partially funded) to 100% (fully funded) depending on the project type, readiness and scope.
  • The grant is on a first come, first serve basis for applications that meet the requirements, until the funds are depleted.
  • The recipients of the grant may be publicly announced on the website, social media and other online or offline platforms.
  • The outcomes of the funded scopes would be delivered through the report, online/onsite presentation and the draft of the manuscript, whenever applicable.
