The Archon Genomics XPRIZE presented by Express Scripts is an incentivized Prize Competition, with $10 Million to be awarded to the first Team to design and build a rapid and inexpensive technology proving they can accurately sequence the whole human genome.

Fully understand our entire human genome will be a powerful tool for medical applications, much like the progression from the X Ray machine to the MRI scan changed diagnostic procedures. When doctors are able to analyze your unique genetic blueprint together you can make informed decisions about your personal health care.

By decoding secrets locked away in the human genome, therapies and drugs may be developed creating radical medical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity.

ABOUT THE XPRIZE FOUNDATION

The XPRIZE Foundation is an educational (501c3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity, thereby inspiring the formation of new industries and the revitalization of markets that are currently stuck due to existing failures or a commonly held belief that a solution is not possible. The foundation addresses the world's Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself. It motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital.
