Researchers interested in obtaining knockout mice generated from either OmniBank and OmniBank II mouse embryonic stem cell clones should contact the Texas Institute for Genomic
Medicine at www.
Our agreement with Compugen is an important milestone because we will have access to Compugen's proprietary and comprehensive gene and protein database and to its advanced data mining tools that can provide significant insight to genomic
targets at a very early stage of screening.
The advent of the genomic
era has been a boon for the investigation of a growing number of model organisms.
At the same time the glue grant program was gearing up, Cobb, senior investigator Anthony Suffredini of the NIH Critical Care Medicine Department, and Robert Danner, who heads the Infectious Diseases Section in the same department, created the Consortium for Expression Profile Studies in Sepsis specifically to identify the needs of those applying genomic
methods to critical care.
PCR amplifications yielded products from genomic
DNA extracted from the serotype Paratyphi B strain of the size expected from DNA of serotype Typhimurium DT 104 control strain BN9181 (data not shown) (6,12).
Through the therapeutic discovery business, Celera intends to leverage its genomic
and proteomic capabilities to identify drug targets and diagnostic marker candidates, and to discover novel therapeutic candidates.
This collaboration represents the first step towards a truly seamless, integrated intelligence platform for genomic
as well as proteomic discovery," commented Doug Lockyer, Co-CEO of ProteoMetrics.
In addition to DOE, CRS genomic
customers include The Australian Genome Research Facility, The Institute for Genomic
Research (TIGR), Canada's National Research Council and several leading biotechnology companies conducting genomic
com) is the industry's leading provider of microarray-based genomic
services for clinical trials.
Panel discussions covered a wide range of additional topics including the cost and availability of genomic
The Celera Discovery System is an integrated, web-based platform that enables users to leverage Celera's computational tools, super-computing power, and the genomic
and biological databases to advance the discovery process for researchers worldwide.
