  1. The amount of genomics research funded per capita by each country or region is indicated in US$. 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.
