region of the state, to develop strategic plans specifically tailored to their region's unique strengths and resources in order to create jobs and support economic growth.

Lieutenant Governor Robert Duffy , Chair of the Regional Economic Development Councils said, "I commend the members of the Western New York Regional Economic Development Council for their countless hours and dedication in determining what strategies fit this region best. Together with Governor Cuomo, we have traveled to every region of the state to discuss these plans with local communities and now we are witnessing the incredible results of job creation and economic growth. I congratulate Roswell Park Cancer Institute for its success and look forward to continued statewide Regional Economic Development Council progress and future life science initiatives."

The new Center in Buffalo represents the region's first resource for next-generation gene sequencing to meet federal Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) standards. In addition to the $5.1 million received from the State, RPCI has invested $16 million in equipment and infrastructure. Computer Task Group, a national leader in healthcare information technology, has pledged another $2.5 million toward the Center. Additional collaborators include the University at Buffalo, IMMCO Diagnostics and Western New York Urology Associates LLC.

The combination of high-throughput and personal gene sequencers in the Center, along with its dedicated 1,600-processor supercomputing cluster, will allow RPCI and its collaborators to analyze individual genomes — a person's unique genetic code, representing the full set of DNA that we inherit from our parents — shedding light on key factors that drive medical care.

"We now have the ability to do robust, 'next-generation' gene sequencing on blood and tissue samples, with tremendous possibilities in terms of what we can learn diagnostic
