Complete Genomics grabs $8 million for pediatric cancer sequencing

Complete Genomics Inc. will be paid $8 million to sequence the genomes of about 500 children with cancer.
The Mountain View company has already sequenced genomes from 50 children in the first phase of this project. It’s working for SAIC-Frederick Inc., which is in turn working for the National Cancer Institute under a contract paid for by stimulus funding from the U.S. government.
