ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM

   New `Tools for DNA Diagnostics' Competition Opened

   NIST's Advanced Technology Program has announced the second
   focused program competition in the area of Tools for DNA
   Diagnostics. The technical goal of the program is to develop
   cost-effective methods to determine, analyze and store DNA
   sequences for a wide variety of diagnostic applications, such as
   for agricultural, environmental and health care uses. The
   business goal of the program is to support the development of a
   new and potentially very large market for DNA diagnostic systems.
   An estimated $15 million is available for funding under this
   competition. Proposals are due by 3 p.m. EST, March 29, 1995.
   Details of the competition were published in the Dec. 21, 1994,
   issue of Commerce Business Daily and are available (along with
   proposal kits) from the ATP office by calling (800) ATP-FUND
   (283-3863) or sending e-mail to atp at micf.nist.gov (via
   Internet).
