I'm not sure how you get funding for genetic research. I'm not even sure what that entails, but as helps here said, it sounds expensive.
However, you could ask a research institute like Monell (at UPenn) or just call around some universities or colleges.
They get private and government funding. If they can't help you, perhaps they could lead you in the right direction?
If you're willing, you could get into some Masters Program and pursue your own research. I don't think you're dreaming, per se.
