Mayo-UM genomics partnership takes a hit


The budget bill that passed out of the House and Senate today includes sizeable cuts to the Minnesota Partnership for Biotechnology and Genomics. The partnership, which is a joint venture between Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota, will lose $427,000 in this budget cycle. It includes a permanent $427,000 cut per year into the future…


Dr. Eric Wieben, Mayo Clinic project leader for the partnership, said the funding cut will likely mean one less funded project per year.
