DNA.Land Gives Back! #dnalandgivesback
We are excited to announce that we will be giving away Whole-Genome sequencing services to some of our users!
Our goal is to reach 40,000 users by Christmas Day. If we can meet that goal as a community, we will be giving two of our users a fully sequenced genome as a holiday gift.
But, it wouldn’t be in true DNA.Land style if we didn’t shoot for the moon!
We have set a number of exciting stretch goals.
If we reach 45,000 users by Christmas Day, we will give five of our users a fully sequenced genome as a holiday gift.
If we reach 50,000 users by Christmas Day, we will give ten of our users a fully sequenced genome as a holiday gift.
And, if we reach 100,000 users by Christmas Day, we will give whopping fifty of our users a fully sequenced genome as a holiday gift.
It has been because of the generosity of our users that DNA.Land has been such a success.
And, we look forward to continuing our service to the scientific community for many years to come!
Thank you.
