  1. The amount of genomics research funded by each country or region is indicated in US$. The region "Other Europe" refers to funding in European countries for which the table does not directly account (i.e. excludes the funding in other rows of the table that was supplied directly from public funds in the listed European countries), and thus is not included in the rank. Rankings were determined by ordering the 2006 values, where the average of the three previous years was used as a substitute for 2006 values when the actual 2006 data was unavailable. Data is reported by fiscal year, as indicated in Table 1.
  2. * The 2006 data is incomplete because of missing information from the South African National Research Foundation or from China's research organizations.
